new FamilySearch in Billings; FGS Reports

Just a quick report. There is an unconfirmed report that new FamilySearch is being rolled out to the Billings Temple District before the end of the month. We'll try to confirm this.

At FGS David Rencher gave a keynote titled "Societies Going Virtual." You can see the slides at http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/Education/societies_going_virtual_David_E_Rencher.pdf. While these slides are from FGS two years ago, the Insider says they're mostly unchanged.

Also at FGS, FamilySearch made an announcement this morning concerning the Records Access program. Dick Eastman got an advance copy of the announcement. (The Insider called in to see if his advance copy had arrived. We lied and said the mail hadn't arrived yet.) For now, read Eastman's announcement.

We've also learned that Ancestry.com is sending all its employees packing their trunks tonight. Yep, they've rented a local water park for the evening.
