I am a retired online school teacher. During July 2007 - January 2010, and September 2011 until the present I have provided part-time support for http://www.familysearch.org This is very rewarding. My greatest strength in this area is the free genealogy software Personal Ancestral File 5 (PAF5). I continue to help others with PAF and New FamilySearch. See

I had a phone call today asking me to do a 1-hour presentation on Getting Help From FamilySearch.org It is a topic I know well, after a year and a half in FamilySearch Support. Their meeting is scheduled for April 18th, so I agreed to do the session if it didn't conflict with my session at the ACS Conference that same day. We will see if I am able to do both, if not my commitment to ACS comes first. In the last two weeks I was sent several excellent old photos by a newly-found distant relative Bruce McGregor, discovered in GenesReunited. I also had contacts from other newly-found distant relatives who found me through the internet.
