A reminder that early bird registration ends today for the California Family History Expo in Pleasanton on October 8-9, 2010.
I'll be presenting two sessions. The first is “Organizing Your Genealogical Research.”
Are you lost in a sea of paper and digital files? Can’t find the records you know you have? Or are you searching for a better way to organize your research? This session by a professional archivist will help you apply simple and effective archival management principles to organize your digital files and paper records, so you can find what you need, avoid duplicating research, and finally tame your information overload.
The second session is “Think Like an Archivist: Finding Hidden Genealogical Materials in Libraries and Archives.”
Learn about locating genealogical materials held in manuscript and photographic collections in libraries and archives worldwide, using online archival portals and digital finding aids. Discover where family records are located in digital finding aids; effective search terms and strategies; specific URLs for institutional, regional, and worldwide archival portals and gateways; and how to search once across multiple institutions to locate family history records.

I hope to see you there!
