"I have the ability to gear presentations to the needs and abilities of the audience.  Two presentations were recorded and are available among the FamilySearch.org research courses.  They will provide an example of my presentation style and knowledge.  Please be advised that in just a short time some information may be out of date or new and not included, but my live presentations contain the most recent details."

Most Overlooked Record-Types in South Carolina

"You may ask why I present on both topics of social networking and genealogy.  In order to further the work of family history, it is imperative to have a working knowledge of how to make connections on social networks and access information in communities.  A savvy networker can breathe life into an organization and bring down brick walls in personal research.  My experience in both has helped me to be a successful networker, and I am willing teach others.  My presentations are powerful because I deliver them from my own experiences and insights gained through my own successes.

Below are some of the presentations that you can request.  I would suggest checking back often because  I take suggestions and will include them here.  Visit my new Facebook page, Ask Me to Present,  where I will be sharing tidbits from past presentations and upcoming appearances."
