  • Sourcing and Collaboration
    Why citing sources is important and how to increase and improve your source citations by working with the various
  • online genealogy databases that allow collaboration with other genealogists.
  • Cloudy, with a Chance of Genealogy
    A simple and down-to-earth explanation of what “The Cloud” is and how genealogists can use Cloud Computing
  •     to simplify their own computer usage.
  • Using WorldCat to Find Genealogy Books
    WorldCat is the world's largest network of library content and services. WorldCat libraries are dedicated to
  • providing      access to their resources on the Web, where most people start their search for information.
  • WorldCat.org lets you search the collections of libraries in your community and thousands more around
  • the world. WorldCat grows every day thanks to the efforts of librarians and other information professionals.
  • Maine Outhouses I Have Known and Loved
    A mix of humor and a serious look at a bit of Americana that doesn't receive much attention. This presentation
  • is made “in costume” as Dick dresses up as an old Maine farmer and makes the presentation with a thick
  • Maine accent.
