Presenter: Thomas MacEntee
 
"After You're Gone: Future Proofing Your Genealogy Research"
 
Have you ever considered what will happen to your years of genealogy research once you’re gone? Learn how to ensure that your hard work carries Through a combination of planning, common sense, and new technologies, we’ll review how to create an action plan for preserving your genealogy research.
 
Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. Currently Thomas shares many of his articles and videos for free at GenealogyBargains.com!
 
“I’m a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics and I’ve finally figured out what I do best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. I believe in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
 
I see things differently than most in the genealogy field; I’m almost never content with the status quo. That doesn’t mean I chase after change just for the sake of change; but when I see an opportunity to improve something and to bring more people into the genealogy sphere, that’s where you’ll find me.”
 
 
There will be no second presentation in December due to presentation of awards and installation of officers.
 
 
All our monthly lectures and workshops are free to our members and the public. Non-members should contact webkeeper@venturacogensoc.org for a Zoom invitation.
 
There is no DNA Special Interest Group meeting in December.

2019 VCGS Salt Lake Safari Research Trip  (Trips to Salt Lake City)
Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah
VCGS is going to Salt Lake City in 2019 for another research trip at the Family History Library. You will be researching in millions of records which are not now online, and may never be, due to contractual and other restrictions. You can also consult with professional genealogists, free, on your problem ancestors. Think you are not ready? There will be a research planning class in January 2021 to get you prepared, and the date for that will be announced closer to the time.
 
 
Remember, the hotel donates free rooms to VCGS for our annual seminar silent auction based on the number of rooms we have used in the past. Your stay pays VCGS and helps with activities like our great monthly speakers and annual seminar.
