Wow – what a week! I’d like to welcome any of the new readers/followers that learned about ConferenceKeeper this past week at RootsTech! Please know that my email and blog posts aren’t usually nearly as long as today’s, and they’re almost always sent/posted on Saturday nights. This week is the exception, since I just returned home after a 4-1/2 hour flight, and I’ve just got so much to share about this past week’s adventures! But first, there are a few items of “business” before I try to sum up the highlights of my time in Salt Lake City. And as always, you’ll find the list of newly added events further down this page.
CALL TO ACTION! (DEADLINE MONDAY MARCH 13)
This is really important to all genealogists and anyone who cares about access to historical government records! The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) has proposed a very large increase in the fees they charge to access historical records that they hold – which includes millions of records of 19th and 20th century immigrants to the US. THESE RECORDS CAN BE FOUND NOWHERE ELSE. They are proposing to raise the fees to as high as $340 for a single document (which in all actuality should be housed at the National Archives and freely available to the public).
A grassroots advocacy campaign called Records Not Revenue (RNR) has ALL of the information you need to know about this proposed rule, and most importantly, HOW to make a difference, at https://www.recordsnotrevenue.com/. Because this proposed rule must go through a comment period, RNR is calling on all genealogists and historians to make a comment voicing opposition to this proposal. The more individual and unique comments USCIS receives on this proposed rule, the better. PLEASE ACT BY MARCH 13, when the comment period will close.
Registration is now open for the 2023 Texas Institute of Genealogical Research (TIGR), to be held virtually, June 12-16, 2023. “Held every other year, TIGR is a unique five-day learning experience offered to address a critical need for genealogists encountering complex challenges”. This year’s Coordinators for the seven courses offered are Kelvin Meyers, J. Mark Lowe, Judy Russell, Catherine Desmarais, Colleen Robledo Greene, Ari Wilkins, and Paul Woodbury. For course descriptions and full details, see: https://www.txsgs.org/tigr-2023-courses/
The Genealogical Forum of Oregon’s Virtual Open House starts next Saturday, March 11, and goes thru the 19th, during which time they’ll be offering 29 free classes on a variety of topics. It’s a really great opportunity to learn new skills as well as to get to know what the society has to offer. (Spoiler alert: some really great member benefits!) Check out the schedule and register in advance (Free) https://gfo.org/learn/open-house-2023.html
Appleton Public Library‘s upcoming webinar, “Find Your Ancestors: More than Money and Land – The Evolution of Bounty Land, Military Pensions, and Alternative Records” with Debra Dudek, which was previously scheduled on March 18, has been changed to Sunday, March 19. All who have already registered via Zoom will use the same link to join the program. If you have registered and are not able to attend the new time, the program will be recorded and an email with a link to the recording will be sent to all who register. The Appleton Library folks send their apologies for the inconvenience. (If you haven’t yet registered and would like to, please go to https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_nvgoPxEjRw6gXUlZdscdNw
MY ROOTSTECH HIGHLIGHTS
My full three days of RootsTech were spent catching up with long-time genealogy friends, meeting new ones, and learning about all sorts of new genealogy products, tools, and events. I absolutely loved being able to finally meet in person people that I’ve only met via email or social media, like Else Churchill from the Society of Genealogists; Helen Tovey, editor of Family Tree magazine (UK); genealogical mystery crime novelist Nathan Dylan Goodwin; the popular speaker Dr. Penny Walters; and the new executive director of the International Institute of Genealogical Studies, Angela Breidenbach.
I was also introduced to Aimee and Heidi, who were at RootsTech representing the DNAngels nonprofit group. This wonderful group are dedicated to helping anyone searching for their biological family using DNA interpretation, mapping and research – and they do it for free. (for more info please see https://www.dnangels.org/)
I stumbled on a real surprise while at the booth learning about Artifcts. They have created a website and mobile app where you can create a digital collection of objects, like heirloom dishes, jewelry — anything, really — and then capture your story of what it means to you. While speaking to the two nice folks behind the table, I learned that one of them was none other than Matt Paxton, one of the “featured cleaners” on the TV show “Hoarders” for 15 seasons. I had to get a selfie with him, because my two adult daughters are huge fans! We got to talking about our kids and families, as well – he’s really a super nice guy. You can check out the Artifcts online exhibitor page at RootsTech.org, or their website at https://artifcts.com
Maybe it was because I haven’t been to a big in-person conference since 2020, but every booth, every vendor seemed to have something new to learn about. MyHeritage has rolled out a whole lot of new features, including cM Explainer, which predicts possible relationships between two people as well as determines their most recent common ancestor and shows the relationship path. Another new featurs is the ability to color code your family tree. But the most meaningful announcement, I think, is the launch of the 3rd installment of their DNA Quest project, which will provide 5,000 free DNA kits to adoptees and family members of those searching for adoptees. Anyone over 18 that meets the criteria can apply until March 17. (Apply at https://dnaquest.org/)
I was also really impressed with the way Vivid Pix is continuing to grow, providing valuable products and information to the genealogy community, and now working with NGS to help and support societies with programs and education. If you’re connected to a society, check out their new Family Matters programs! https://www.vivid-pix.com/familymatters/
New to me was the booth for EphemeraSearch, which is an online database of old mail. They’re mission is to digitize old postcards, letters, telegrams, and other ephemera so genealogists can search for their ancestors’ correspondence. https://www.ephemerasearch.com
And because I spent today flying home and would really like to go to bed soon (but newsletter first!) I’m only going to mention one more booth that caught my eye. Cite-Builder is an easy online tool for helping to create genealogy citations. There is a free version of the tool and a paid version, and I can’t wait to have some time to try it out! cite-builder.com
My apologies for any errors this week, or anything that I may have overlooked! As always, please don’t hesitate to use the CONTACT form on the website or email me at email@example.com if you have any suggestions, comments, or questions. I always have access to my email 🙂 I hope y’all have a great week!
