This year’s Family History Technology Workshop will be held at the Salt Palace. NGS has been a magnet that drew all of the annual computerized genealogy and technology conferences to Salt Lake City. Obviously, conference organizers wanted to make it convenient for many NGS attendees and developers to attend as many sessions as possible.
The Program Schedule for tomorrow is available from the FHTW home page but I wanted to give the highlights here.
There will be three major sessions: Record Linkage, Data Extraction, and Geospatial Visualization of Family History.
At 3:30 pm I will be hosting a panel on Platforms for Family History Developers, where we will have developers on platforms such as Facebook, iPhone, iPad, and Google Android discuss the opportunities and challenges that each new technology platform offers.
I hope to see you there.
