Third Time is a Charm
On Saturday we had an opportunity to do a presentation to the New Zealand Society of Genealogists about FamilySearch. It was a great success. We had about 60 people there, all long time researchers. There were some great questions from the group and everyone seemed eager to learn all they could.
When we teach seminars for church members and leaders we focus more on WHY we do family history and the spiritual aspects of the endeavor. When we do presentations for outside groups we focus on the specifics of how FamilySearch works and why it is such a great tool for people who are already interested in family history.
We were supposed to present for this same group last year, but had to cancel the first time when I broke my wrist in Fiji. Then, the second time, we were invited at a time that conflicted with our travel in Tonga. We were all glad that things finally worked out for us to be there and that the presentation went so well.
