Because I have been asked to provide my areas of interest and credentials to various genealogical groups, for the purpose of identifying future presentation & webinar options, I have elected to create this page. As a technologist (a.k.a geek), it seems only appropriate to use this format and forum. This page will dynamically update itself as my list of potential topic areas/ subjects grows and shrinks…
Please note: we can conduct almost any presentation remotely, without consuming travel costs. We simply need to have access to, any of many, web technologies that allow remote desktop or image sharing, verbal broadcast, etc. If you believe your group might be interested in scheduling a webinar (remotely conducted presentation), please contact me directly to discuss options and arrangements.

Major Areas of Genealogical Expertise
Scheduled Events/ Previous Speaking News
I suspect that no one will request my ‘august’ presence on very short notice. If that assumption is correct (you have to love nested assumptions), anything in the list above and in the list below is a potential for a genealogical presentation/ talk.
We can conduct presentations remotely (as noted above) or I can travel to your group. Whichever works best for your group, works best for me.
Travel: to be covered by the hiring group at US Federal Travel Regulation rates… or at something that seems reasonable to me.
Equipment Needs: provided by the hiring group. I can bring my own PC but everything else needs to be provided ie. Projection, Printing, etc. If we do a remote presentation, then we need to plan for your specific requirements.
