Speaking out in 2016

The Legal Genealogist is quite certain that it will come as a great surprise to everyone out there.

PrintYou would never ever have guessed that … well … I like to talk about genealogy.

I know, I know. Such a shocking revelation.1

Can’t help it — with my most of my family tending to roll their eyes when I even say the word genealogy, I have to have an outlet someplace. And I got hooked on having people laugh at my jokes during all those years of teaching law students.2

Fortunately, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my years as a genealogist, it’s that genealogists like to listen — and learn — and share.

So if you’re of a mind to come out and listen — and learn — and share with me your stories, too, here are some 2016 options: conferences, seminars and lectures where you can find me.

  2. No comments, please, about the possibility that they laughed only because I got to grade them at the end of the semester.
