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:

  • East & West Prussia, Pomerania (pre-1948 formerly Eastern Germany, now Poland)
  • Shoah (Holocaust) Jewish Research
  • Prussian Mennonites
  • Swiss-Alsacian Mennonites-Amish
  • New France (Quebec)
  • Upstate New York & Vermont
  • South Eastern Iowa
  • Genealogy Supportive Technologies, Websites, etc.
  • Name ‘morphing’- dealing with imprecise or inaccurate Names

Potential Topics

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.

  • Fees: Negotiable
  • Remote Presentations: Most certainly doable. If we do wish to conduct a remote presentation, then we need to plan for your specific requirements.
  • 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.

Here are excerpts of comments I have received on my presentations:

Thank you so much. I will take your information to our next meeting and ask the members what they would most like to learn. The Colorado Genealogical Council has a speaker’s list available for all the genealogical societies and I would like to add your name and information to that list. […] I’m very excited about what you have to offer. […]thanks again.

Thank you very much for your program June 12th and PGS is looking forward to Oct 9th. I would love to see any programs you give wherever they are and to the Colorado Genealogical Council and Parker Family History center. The [people] who are in charge of the Family History Center will be in touch with you about your programs and when they might be. I was asked by the Colorado Genealogical Council to give them names of people I knew who are great speakers. I gave them your name. […] Thank you for your interest and for just being you.

    I am the vice president of the Larimer County Genealogical Society and one of my responsibilities is scheduling speakers for our monthly meetings. We meet in Fort Collins the third Thursday from February through November. Our meetings start at 6:30 with the speaker at 7:15.
    Attendance ranges from 50 to 75 members.
    Would you be able to speak at one of our 2012 meetings on doing Canadian research? And if so, what would your fee be? Our society would make copies of any handouts you would have.
    Thank You,
    Kathleen Patrick
    Vice President
    Larimer County Genealogical Society
