From Megan Smolenyak
Whether or not youâ€™re planning on attending this yearâ€™s Federation of Genealogical Societies conference in Boston, I hope I can impose on you to help me develop a presentation Iâ€™ll be giving there at the joint luncheon of the Genealogical Speakers Guild and the International Society of Family History Writers and Editors. My topic is Finding Your Voice: Speaking and Writing in the Genealogical World, and while I have a little experience in these areas myself, I like to broaden my talks by including the perspectives and experiences of others.
For that reason, I would be extremely grateful if you would take a couple of minutes to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me about your favorite genealogical writer and/or speaker. In particular, Iâ€™d like to know what it is about this personâ€™s writing or speaking that appeals to you â€“ why this one stands apart from others. And if you happen to be a writer or speaker yourself, I welcome any lessons learned or anecdotes you might care to share. Thanks in advance for your help!
