I’ve not been posting for a couple of weeks. I’ve been traveling a lot. I presented to about 1000 people at the Midwest Genealogy Center’s Ancestry Day and I’m now at Roots Tech 2013.
Also, I’ve been ramping up a new blog for Ancestry.com called Ancestry Reference Desk (http://www.ancestry-reference-desk.com) My goal, is to create a teaching blog/site to help people who use Ancestry.com and Fold3 in libraries how to be more effective.
