Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about genealogy education opportunities, including attending genealogy conferences like RootsTech. Our guest, Amberly Beck, talks about her first experience at RootsTech in Salt Lake City and how Tom Jones’ classes impacted her. She also shares about her experience speaking at RootsTech London and some of the classes she liked there. After recording the episode, Amberly shared a great thought with us. She said, “Sometimes we love researching so much that we don’t want to give up any of our research time to genealogy education. But every minute of research time we give up to learning, especially about genealogy methodology, we gain back ten-fold. We become much more effective and efficient researchers.” Join us for a fun discussion of learning opportunities for genealogists!
