Bret Petersen
9/14/13

Categories: S , H

Talk Abstract:
Mobile devices are all around us with smartphones, tablets, and other devices. We use them for communicating, playing games and maybe keeping our calendar up-to-date. However, many don’t realize all of the ways that they can help in our genealogy research. Come with us as we explore some of the many ways that one might make the most of the power behind these devices.

Speaker Bio:
Bret Petersen developed a love of family history research at a young age and it continued through his college years at BYU where he graduated with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Education. His passion for family history research and the growth of computer-assisted research led him to the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group where he served as their volunteer webmaster for a decade. He is currently serving as President of the Utah Genealogical Association (UGA). He is a graduate of the National Institute on Genealogical Research and the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. As a member of the Genealogical Speakers Guild he has been a presenter and teacher for groups ranging from just a few to several hundred participants. He loves teaching and helping others learn all they can about using technology in researching their family history. More information about him is on a blog that he writes about his own ancestors http://blog.branchesofourtree.com/ and at https://plus.google.com/110509921128790991142 .
