My next post at Family Tree Firsts is up and about the Family Tree University Virtual Conference. Read about my experiences with all the stuff I learned from the last one here.
To be fair, and up front, I can attend this event free of charge as their Family Tree Firsts blogger. With that being said, I still would have paid money to attend it! In fact, and you can ask them, I have told all my friends and family who are into genealogy that they HAVE TO attend this conference. Particularly the ones who are a bit strapped for cash right now, have to worry about child care, or a multitude of other reasons that prevent them from going to one that is live. I had such a great experience at the one virtual conference last spring I had to spread the word around.
I particularly love that you can participate as much, or as little, as you want. The Saturday of the upcoming conference in September I have plans to be out in a state park all day. I may miss a couple live chats, but that's okay. I can pick up where I left off when I get back.
So... I hope to "see" you there and bump into you online!
