Research Notes 2019-2-18

RootsTech is a little more than a week away. Even if you can’t make the trip to Salt Lake City, you can still enjoy a lot of RootsTech goodness. You can install the RootsTech app on your mobile device or you can view the online app using your computer’s web browser. Why get the app? It gives you access to the speaker notes for every presentation given at the conference.


A number of sessions will be live-streamed so you can watch them from home. Visit the Streaming Schedule page to see which sessions will be streamed and when (times given are Mountain Time Zone). Watch the sessions on the RootsTech home page.

Tap the Social Media icon on the RootsTech app and you will find yourself in the middle of the conversations about the conference via Twitter. It’s also a good way to connect with the vendors in the expo hall.


Closer to home . . . the North Florida Genealogy Conference is Saturday, March 9th. Do you have Irish ancestors? If so, you will find Donna Moughty’s presentations quite interesting. That’s just the beginning of a broad range of research topics. Registration is now open and since there are limited facilities, you will want to register early – before all the seats are filled. Visit the

conference’s home page to see your registration options.


Did you know that the Google+ social network is shutting down? If you are a Google+ user about to lose your account, MeWe is building a tool that will import your Google+ data to MeWe. The tool is called G+ MeWe Importer and should be released in early March. In the meantime, you have until April 2nd to download your Google+ content. You will find instructions on how to download your content in Google Help.


If you have French ancestors in your family, you might find this webinar quite interesting.

Legacy Family Tree will host a free webinar – Online Resources for French Genealogy Part 1: Compiled Records, Church Records and Civil Registration – on Wednesday, Feb. 20th at 2:00pm Eastern time. You can register to watch it live at Family Tree Webinars or you watch the recorded presentation in the FTW library. It will be available for seven days after the live presentation.
