I love connecting with people and am happy to talk to large and small groups on certain aspects of  technology and their relationship to genealogy.

I also have significant experience in presenting workshops for adults in computer lab settings. I am extending and enriching my knowledge in the field of genealogy by participating in a range of learning activities.
