Then have I got some good news for you!

We have been hearing that quite a few of you WikiTreer's, like me, have been out giving presentations on WikiTree in webcasts, hangouts and in person at Genealogy events.

To make these presentations available to our collaborative whole (sounds a bit Borg-ish), the Multi-Media Project has created a place for you to share your presentation slides, WikiTree Presentations

Have a presentation to share? Add it to the presentations page please - or shoot a note to me and I'll help you get it posted...if you give me some blueberry pie.

I posted the slides before I spoke and the first slide has the location of the presentation here on WikiTree...I know that I had people following along as I spoke because the projector screen was so far away from the session attendees, the slides were hard to see. I also know for a fact that at least two people joined after my session because they came up and asked me this or that about joining, while joining, from their mobile devices. Mags

This is great.  I think I'm going to be asked to give q presentation about Wikitree this Fall, and I am looking for inspiration.  Please, all of you who have already given talks, help by uploading your slides, outlines, etc.

I gave a talk yesterday to the Clark County Genealogical Society in Henderson, NV.  I did it on the fly, so slides, etc.  Maybe next time.

Here is a video of my 2015 presentation on using DNA and WikiTree to find Bahamian ancestry:

The beginning is a general introduction to genetic genealogy and at about the 27 minute mark I begin to talk about WikiTree and it's DNA features.
