"Genealogy Resolutions for 2015 That Make Sense and I Can Keep"
Speaker: Billie Stone Fogarty, M. Ed
Resolutions…..many of us start each new year resolving to do better than we did the previous year. This time of year is the perfect time to look at how we might improve our genealogy pursuits. The cold days of January offer a break from the hustle of the recent holiday life and even from the normal activity of life today. Make use of that break by putting into action some of the tips and suggestions we will discuss on Monday, January 5, 2015, at 6:00 PM at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City, when the Oklahoma Genealogical Society meeting will be “Genealogy Resolutions for 2015 That Make Sense and That I Can Keep.”
Speaker Billie Stone Fogarty will offer tips for targeting your research focus to reach those goals. She may show you a few shortcuts or some tips to ease those fears about properly citing your sources. And much to the surprise of some, Billie might even give a few tips on the number one item on most genealogists’ list of resolutions --- organizing your research!
