One of the things I’m really enjoying about my participation in these 13 weeks on Genealogy Do-Over is the push to develop new skill sets. Unfortunately, I have not been active in the genealogy world for quite a few years and thus, my skill set needs improved. Finding the various Facebook groups related to genealogy has helped me connect with learning opportunities. In developing my ‘learning plan’ for genealogy I simply created check-lists of opportunities.
These checklists will serve as a reminder of what is available. Since many of these occur during my work day, I won’t be able to participate in the ‘live’ event. However, many are archived or posted on YouTube which will make it possible for me to view them as my schedule permits.
Since I am a continuous learner for my job in public education, I’m hoping that I can find the time to watch at least some of these presentations this fall and winter.
