Colorado Family History Expo, June 12th-13th

Posted On: May 17th, 2009 | Posted by: Dean

Genlighten will be an exhibitor at the Colorado Family History Expo 2009, to be held in Loveland, Colorado June 12th-13th. Stop by booth 305 for a well-deserved chocolate break (if you’re into that kind of thing!) I’d very much enjoy meeting you there.

I’ll be giving three presentations at the Expo:

  • What Family History Center Consultants Should Know about Footnote.com — Friday, 3:00 pm
  • Twitter: A Promising Tool for Genealogy Microblogging — Saturday, 9:30 am
  • Providing Fee-based Lookups Through Genlighten.com — Saturday, 11:00 am

This is the first time Family History Expos has put on one of their events in Colorado. I’ve been impressed with their St. George and Mesa Expos in the past, and I anticipate this one will be well worth attending.

I’m particularly excited for the opportunity to recruit lookup providers from Colorado. The web development firm that helped us develop the current front end design for Genlighten — Slice of Lime — is headquartered in Boulder. During our initial discussions of how the site would look, they created wireframes showing sample lookup offerings using fictitious Boulder records and providers. They kidded me (in a nice way) about not having any actual Boulder-area providers signed up yet. I would love to come home from this Expo having met with potential providers not only from Boulder, but from Larimer, Broomfield, Jefferson, and other nearby counties.
