The Insider Going Outside

2010 Salt Lake Family History Expo Kind readers,

Some of you wrote about the lack of articles last week. No, I haven’t been sick. No, your spam filter did not eat my newsletters last week. But thank you for your concerns. I prepare my articles the weekend before they are published. If I’m booked solid all weekend, you may not hear from me.

Such was the case last week. I was working hard to meet the syllabus deadline for the 2010 Salt Lake Family History Expo. The expo is 27-28 August 2010 at the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy, Utah.

I am presenting “Blog Your Way to Genealogical Success.” This class is aimed at the super-beginner. It isn’t really about blogging; it is about creating a website to publish information about your genealogy. You will walk out of the class with instructions detailed enough that you will have your own website by the end of the day. In fact, one lucky attendee will have one by the end of the class!

For an example website, I collaborate with Robert Raymond, a coworker at FamilySearch. You can check it out to see if you’d like to attend the class. It is Ancestors of Wickliff Clayton Raymond at

Look over the presentation schedule and register for the conference.


  1. When I clicked on the link provided to see an example of Clayton Raymond's ancestor website, I could not find it. What showed up instead Biblical information. Even in the site menu on the left I saw nothing about Ancestors or Clayton Raymond.

  2. A couple quick questions - I took a long at the outline - many open TBA spots - how does one decide to attend (if from out of town) when so much is up in the air one month before conference?
    Also checked out the blog you referenced - how do you get pictures (when clicked on) to open in another window full size?

  3. I couldn't see anything about the ancestors of Wickliff Clayton Raymond at That web site appears to be some kind of fundamental Christian doomsday site. Is that really the web site you meant to plug?

  4. Check the link to your website as it leads to a place which has a high likely hood of not being yours
