A Queenslander at Rootstech

My mate Margaret Doherty from the Sunshine State, Queensland, and her husband Geoff travelled to Salt Lake City for the Rootstech Conference last month.

I had not made a time to interview Margaret but she happened to swing by the Media Hub to say G'day when there was a 5 minute spot in the video studio available for an interview. Now Margaret, President of the Genealogical Society of Queensland is a good sport, so she agreed to a short interview with me.

We had great fun in this informal chat. Please take a look to find out why Margaret travelled to Salt Lake City and to hear about the Society she leads.

I really enjoy your interviews! Brings back memories and gives new input from different people! Especially the interview with Dennis Brimhall and young Alona (which I had the pleasure to meet at Thomas' birthdayparty). Looking forward to see more! Thank you.

The next best thing to being there - thank you Jill.

The Society became a haven to me whilst living in Qld, when a friend and I would go down from the Sunshine Coast on a regular basis...made many great discoveries there - thank you for the interview.
