International Black Genealogy Summit

I’m looking forward to attending and speaking at the International Black Genealogy Summit that will be held October 29-31, 2009 in Fort Wayne, IN. The theme of the conference will be “Reconnecting Lost Links.”

My lecture will be entitled “The Power of Blogging” and will demonstrate the basics of blogging, ranging from the technical aspects of blog creation, publishing and upkeep, to ways to steer traffic to a blog.

Not only do I look forward to presenting at this conference and learning new things from the other workshops, but I also anticipate meeting other researchers from around the world. Some of the attendees will be researchers whom I’ve met at other genealogy conferences. Some will be researchers whom I have met online and others will be researchers whom I will meet for the first time.
