What's Happening on the Internet?

Speaker:

A panel of EGS Members

About the Program: A panel of EGS members will discuss what's happening on the Internet that genealogists might want to know about. This includes both new internet sites such as myheritage.com as well as new genealogical material on existing sites. This will be a highly interactive discussion with the audience. There are a lot of interesting things going on, with many new websites and databases. Acquisition of existing genealogy sites by Ancestry, for example, is a great discussion topic. How many of us realize that Ancestry's family now includes AncestryDNA, Archives.com, Family Tree Maker, Find a Grave, Fold3, Genealogy.com, Genline, Heritage Makers, Newspapers.com, Progenealogists, Rootsweb, Shoebox, as well as 7 different Ancestry websites in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and United Kingdom? To say nothing of the fact that if you already have a subscription to Ancestry you may be able subscribe some of the other Ancestry owned websites at a greatly reduced cost? Please join us for the interactive and informative discussion.

Visitors Welcome!
