MCGG Resource Development Session is tomorrow Friday, February 21

Got some free time tomorrow afternoon? 

On Friday, February 21, at 1:00 pm in the auditorium of the Mount Clemens Public Library, we are holding one of our MCGG Resource Development Sessions.

What is a Resource Development Session? It is where those of us who want to contribute back index circuit court and other Macomb County records to create databases to help other researchers. It does not matter if you have Macomb County ancestors or not. It's a nice way to help others; learn what is involved in an indexing projects; and if you do have Macomb County ancestors ... who knows you might just find one. 

So for those of you who are in the Mount Clemens area, PLEASE JOIN US

See you soon at the Mt. Clemens Public Library!

The Mount Clemens Public Library, has another wonderful event planned. On Saturday, March 22, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. the library is having a Mount Clemens History Scan & Share Day.

Do you have photos of Mount Clemens people, places, events, buildings, etc., in family photo albums? Share them with researchers everywhere by bringing them to the library to be scanned and added to our online local history archive. Your family treasures will be handled with care and returned to you immediately. Bring a flash drive if you would also like to have a copy of the scan for yourself.

Though not required, a registration sign-up is requested on the Library Events Calendar so that an estimate of how many people to expect can be made.

RootsTech Adding 2014 Recorded Sessions to its Website

Yesterday, the RootsTech 2014 four-day conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, ended. For the past three days, just a tiny sample of the various sessions have been Live Streamed so that thousands around the country (maybe the world) could also take part in this genealogy/history learning event.

If you did not get a chance to view a session live, don't worry. The organizers are in the process of adding the recorded sessions now. You can find them at the RootsTech website on the video page. Currently, just the first two sessions from Thursday are available. The rest will be uploaded too. (I am guessing it may take a several days to a bit more than week for RootsTech to get them all uploaded.)

Syllabus handouts to all sessions that had handouts - even the unrecorded ones - have been and are still available at the syllabus materials page.

To see all of the various session topics, check out the session viewer on the schedule page.

I am sure you will find a topic of interest to you. To find the handout for a particular session, make note of the session id -- the letters and numbers given after the session title. You will need that because the syllabus handouts are listed by session id not session title.

Have fun learning!
