    2. Charles Hansen
    3. Canadian Research Saturday, November 3 Canadian Research (Seminar) Country Homes Christian Church, 8415 N Wall, Spokane, WA Genealogical research in the Pacific Northwest often leads to cross-border connections, because our relatives seemed to think that the grass was greener on the other side. Or maybe it was love, or economic opportunities. Presenter Dave Obee -- a Canadian journalist and genealogical researcher, will give five presentations on researching your Canadian connections. Dave has written a dozen books and given more than 600 presentations at conferences and seminars in Canada, the United States and Australia since 1997. He is Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of the Times Colonist in Victoria, British Columbia. In 2012 Dave was awarded an honorary doctorate of laws by the University of Victoria for his work as a historian, genealogist and journalist. In 2017 Dave was awarded the annual Bill Good award, which recognizes a B.C. journalist, leader or educator who has made a significant impact in journalism and in the community at large. He is a member of the board of Canada’s History Society, and is a member of the services consultation committee at Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa. Dave is a columnist for two magazines, Internet Genealogy and Your Genealogy Today. He is the author of Counting Canada: A Genealogical Guide to the Canadian Census, and Destination Canada: A Genealogical Guide to Immigration Records. Dave is also the co-author (with Sherry Irvine) of Finding Your Canadian Ancestors: A Beginner's Guide, published by Ancestry in 2007. Dave’s talks in Spokane will deal with immigration, the census, war records, Internet resources and more. While in Spokane Dave plans to do more research into his family connections here – connections that he will include in his talks.

Three years ago, the Utah Genealogical Association <http://ugagenealogy.org/> had a lofty goal: triple their membership by the end of the year. How could they possibly expect to meet that goal? Learn how they took the time to get together and create a plan by using a *Kaizen (a Japanese word meaning "continuous improvement") process*, which utilizes the following steps: 1. Define your problem 2. Document your current situation 3. Visualize your ideal situation 4. Define measurement targets (how will you know you've reached your goal?) 5. Brainstorm solutions to your problem 6. Develop Kaizen plan 7. Implement your plan 8. Measure, record and compare results to targets 9. Prepare summary documents 10. Create short-term action plan, ongoing standards and sustaining plan UGA past President Janet Hovorka and UGA Board Member Christy Fillerup explain how they plan to do it utilizing several different initiatives: *Education* - recognized the need for intermediate/advanced genealogical education *Networking* - putting researchers in touch with each other for collaboration opportunities *Flexibility* - implemented virtual meetings for committee/chapter meetings across the state *Volunteerism* - offered varied opportunities to utilize the diverse talents of its membership You can hear the details in the archived broadcast of "A Society on the Grow" on the BlogTalkRadio My Society channel <http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mysociety/2011/06/04/a-society-on-the-grow> by FGS or you can listen below: Listen To History Internet Radio Stations with mysociety <http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mysociety> on BlogTalkRadio A Society on the Grow <http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mysociety/2011/06/04/a-society-on-the-grow>

    1. [WA-EWGS] WSGS Conference
    2. Washington State Genealogy Conference [email protected] From Eric Stroschein [email protected] The first two weeks of registration has been hugely successful. Close to 100 people have already signed up for classes with D. Josh Taylor, Luana Darby, Janet Camarata, and Steven W. Morrison. Attendees are flocking to the DNA and methodology classes and all sessions are beginning to fill up with some classes are already half full. Help us hit our goal of 125 registered attendees by April 1. If you are the 100th, 115th, or the 125th registrant you will receive a free copy of Dr. Thomas Jones' new book Mastering Genealogical Proof. For those of you who have already registered and paid your fees your name will go into a hat and one of you too will win a copy of the same book. While great content is important in a conference, we also know it is only part of why professional and hobbyist genealogists attend these events; you also want to make connections. When you attend the WSGC 2014 this August, you'll be in good company with genealogists from across the country. In a quick glimpse at our attendees, we've got people coming from all across the country. If you're looking for Pennsylvania families, so are some of our attendees. Likewise Ohio, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Ireland, Germany, and Sweden - most all of us have families from England. Check out the conference goers' map http://www.wsgs2014conference.com/conference-goers-map/ and see if you've got long-lost family coming to Washington State in August.

    3. Many of us consider putting our tree at just Ancestry.com or Family Search Family Tree. Renee Zamora wrote in her blog last May (2013) about why it is a good idea to maintain our data on our own computers in a genealogy program. Remee os am employee (a service agent) of RootsMagic.and she wrote this post about Family Tree specifically. It has been republished by RootsMagic in their monthly newsletter that come out today. I think the article is worth reading by all of us so I post a link to the original on Renee Zamora's blog. It is at: http://rzamor1.blogspot.com/2013/05/do-i-still-need-desktop-genealogy.html John Wilson EWGS member

    1. [WA-EWGS] Happy New Year
    2. Greetings to EWGS members and x-EWGS members still on this mail list. Happy New Year and I hope all of you had a great Merry Christmas. This mail list is very old and as such it has the ability for all 95 people on this list to send messages to the others on this list, so if you have a question, or a gripe, a suggestion, or praise for a job well done lets hear it. On Facebook I joined a group called the NextGen Genealogy Network, a group of young 20-40 year old genealogists talking on why they are not welcome at many genealogy societies or genealogy conferences, and yet this is the group we need to be attracting to our societies since many of us will not be around forever, and that was made very clear by the passing of some very wonderful EWGS members this year. Do you miss any of them? Lets hear about it. The EWGS board is made up by a group of great people, but we still need input from you, do you like our programs? our seminars? Any suggestions? The Digital Digest people need help also, do you have something you could write an article on? Maybe on how to set up your new toy you got for Christmas to do genealogy? A great website for research? Lets hear from you? Just put [email protected] in your To box and send a plain text message to this list. Rootsweb can strip some html from E-Mails but prefers text as text does not transmit viruses.
