Research Notes 2020-11-9

There’s another storm brewing off the west coast of Florida. It looks like Eta is going to wander around the Gulf of Mexico for a few days before it heads towards Cedar Key. It will lose most of its winds as it moves across north Florida. While it should be a small storm once it moves inland, it still would be smart to backup your computer data – genealogical and personal – just in case.


The RootsTech Connect conference is scheduled for 25-27 February 2021. Because of the pandemic, RootsTech Connect will be entirely virtual and completely free. There will still be celebrity keynote speakers, a broad range of classes, cultural activities and even a virtual marketplace.

You can register now. All you need to do is head to Rootstech at and fill the registration form. Once you’re registered, stop by your app store (Google Play or Apple’s App Store)  to download the RootsTech app. The app will keep you up-to-date on the presentations, classes and events. It is also where the speaker handouts will be passed on to attendees. You can even use it to connect with others attending the conference. That’s it!


Virus or no virus, our local cousins are working together to create an awesome Thanksgiving. Our California family along with the Carolina crowd and a few nearby cousins will be here for a week or two of fun and great food. It’s also a great time to introduce the younger family members to their ancestors. My cousin and I are building a slideshow to introduce them to some amazing characters, some heroes and some great storytellers.

Looking for ideas to capture your family’s interest in their family history? Visit the Storytellers Studio blog on Tumblr.
