My First Blog Post!

Hello, everyone.  I have finally jumped on to the blog bandwagon where I plan to keep you up to date on my upcoming speaking engagements as well as any new find in my family history.  I may also comment on any new exciting news from the online family history world.  I do not know how frequent my posts may appear, but often enough to keep you interested.

RootsTech 2017 is happening right now in Salt Lake City.  It has been interesting to see the Facebook posts of my friend, Amie Bowser Tennant, who is working at the Genealogy Pod Cast booth as well as giving several presentations during the conference.  She seems to be having a lot of fun.

If you have not checked out the schedule of live streaming presentations, the list is at  If you are not able to catch the live stream, those same presentations are available the next day as recorded sessions.  Yesterday’s keynote with the Property Brothers (Jonathan and Drew Scott) was particularly fun and interesting.

Looking ahead to March, and local to the Chicago area, the Fountaindale Public Library in Bolingbrook still has a few spaces for their 2-day Irish research workshop.  The event will also be streamed.  You can get the details at

Until next time, Maureen
