10:20 AM Announcements 

10:30 AM Guest Speaker:  Alice Colby Volkert
                   Presentation: "Yours, Mine and Ours" 

The idea is exploring how people USED to "do genealogy" in the old days. With self-address-stamped-envelopes, etc. Then input from the attendees. Then how we the people NOW "do genealogy; with their own records: Ancestry, Legacy, MAC, etc. Then input from the attendees. Then we look into the ways people are sharing and combining their efforts. Then input from the attendees. Wrap-up will be a look into the future: automatic processing, face recognition, semantic searches, etc.
