Tacoma-Pierce County Genealogical Society

Spring Seminar

April 19, 2014

Speaker: Dick Eastman

On January 15, 1996, Dick Eastman launched Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter and announced it to 100 surprised friends and acquaintances. The weekly grew into a daily publication that gives its readers a wide range of timely genealogical news and helpful articles by Dick and his guest authors. More than 75,000 genealogists all over the world now subscribe to Dick’s free daily Newsletter. See what it’s all about at EOGN.com.

Taking full advantage of today’s communication technology Dick can split his time between his home in suburban Boston and a vacation home in Orlando – that’s when he’s not travelling in his motor home between genealogical events around the country. He has been known to fly when vast expanses of saltwater would turn his RV into a leaky submarine.

Dick is a well-known speaker at genealogy conferences around the world, from RootsTech to NGS, Who Do You Think You Are? Live!, (in London!), as well as genealogy cruises.

A special Certificate of Recognition has been newly created by the Society of Genealogists to recognise exceptional contributions to genealogy by individuals and institutions worldwide. In the first year nomination forms were made available to Fellows of the Society for their suggestions and among the successful candidates were:

"Dick Eastman for having the vision to promote family history through the CompuServe Genealogy Forum and by founding and maintaining the daily Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter."

Come meet Dick Eastman!
