The Larimer County Genealogy Society (in northern Colorado) is looking for an expert on WikiTree to speak to our group about WikiTree in 2019 (why use it, how does it work, how to get started, philosophy and culture, etc.). We meet on the third Thursday at 6:30 pm.  The program time is 50-60 minutes.  We had a speaker lined up, but she moved to Salt Lake City before she could give the program.  I think our members would be very interested to learn about WikiTree.  Thanks, Tammie Gregori, Vice President and Program Chair, Larimer County Genealogy Society
closed with the note: speaker found.  Thank you all.

If no one else is able to give a presentation about Wikitree, I'd be happy to give one.  I live in Colorado (on the western slope).  I've been an active member since August 2014, I participate in a lot of projects, and I'm an experienced and interesting public speaker.  I'm a retired librarian, so I'm pretty much available any time.  I also happen to have ancestors who settled in Larimer county, so I spend a fair amount of time correcting newspapers from that county as a volunteer for Colorado Historic Newspapers.org.

My wife's another volunteer for the ColoradoHistoricNewspapers.org project. She goes in spurts. Mostly Gilpin County.

Rejected again.  Oh, well. Tammy probably thought I'd charge.

Is there a date/time for the talk?
by Doug McCallum G2G6 Pilot (424k points)
I should mention that I'm not far from Fort Collins (Longmont). I haven't given talks about WT before but have experience speaking. I've presented at conferences and taught at university level for a year. If the timeframe fits my schedule, it would be easily done.
Please email me at tammiegregori@mac.com.  Thanks.
