D. Joshua Taylor has been mesmerizing audiences as the host of PBS' Genealogy Roadshow. He recently assumed the helm as the President and Executive Director of the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society (NYG&B). He is concurrently serving as the President for the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS).
The accomplished professional genealogist will be the coordinator in January 2017 for his course "Diving Deeper into New England" at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG). Starting with the colonial period and moving to the 1850s, “Diving Deeper into New England” will take an in-depth look at New England research, specifically focusing on little-known and underused sources.
In May, you will have the opportunity to hear Josh at the NGS Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he will be presenting the following lectures:
- "Context and More: JSTOR for Genealogists"
- "Before You Click: Creating Your Online Research Plan"
- "To the Rescue: 10 Times a Local Society has Haved My Bacon" ($)
- "Focus on Place: Building Locality Profiles for Your Research"
- "Leaving Your Digital Footprint: Preserving Your Files"
Then you can plan to join him at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in January 2017. Check the website at http://ugagenealogy.org/cpage.php?pt=408 to answer your SLIG questions and for information on registration.
