Gen Societies in the 21st Century

I spent a meaningful and thought-provoking hour last Saturday at 1 p.m. Central Time listening to the first of a series of programs on genealogical society strategies for the 21st century. (…and I intend to spend that same time each coming Saturday that I can manage.)

The series is sponsored by the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS)(which I highly recommend that we join) and is hosted by Thomas MacEntee of Chicago who is one of those people who get it that new methods can help us be more successful in the coming years.

For those times I can’t hear the program live, the programs are archived so that one can listen later as I am doing this Monday morning. Don’t worry about not being near Chicago, the series is broadcast over the internet. If you can devote an hour (or some portion thereof), you can click on the link below. When the new page comes up, you should have the program start up automatically. Need to pause, just press that same button again to pause and, once again, when ready to restart.
