I spent today catching up with my society duties as VP-Program Chair. It seems after we have a speaker, I need to spend a whole day catching up again. I start preparing a poster for our upcoming speaker for the following month. This person and I share emails back and forth getting prepped for their presentation. I also spend time looking for future speakers, answering society email, and posting anything I may need to to the society.
This past week we had an awesome speaker for our local society, the Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society, or L-AGS as it is commonly referred to. Our speaker was Dr. Steve Morse! I am the VP-Programs Chair for the society this year, and I felt especially lucky that I was able to book him for our meeting as he has been in such high demand, which I am sure you can understand.
I enjoyed his energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and sense of humor very much. Of course, I have heard him speak before, but this was a very timely presentation, using his One Step Webpages to locate Enumeration District numbers in order to find people in the 1940 Census. It is truly amazing the work that has been put into his site and the volunteers and people involved! I would love to help do volunteer work for the site maybe next year when my busy schedule slows a bit.
Before I introduced Dr. Steve Morse, he informed me that the media would be there during his presentation, and they were! If you are local to the Bay Area, I understand this Tuesday on KRON at 5:00 pm there will be a segment on Dr. Steve Morse and his One Step Webpages. This segment may be shown about "5:15 - 5:20 ish." I am looking forward to watching this on Tuesday! In fact, I think I will DVR it! Filming occurred at other presentations of his also, so I am not sure how much of what will be aired will be from his presentation to our society. But who knows, I may see some of our society members from the audience as I know the camera scanned them. Should be a great segment on Dr. Steve Morse, hope you can watch!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
