Better than Soundex
A better system than the Soundex Code that the Census Bureau and genealogists have been using since 1918. Why aren't we all using this better tool

The Organized Genealogist
A look at various methods of organizing online searches, recording the results of those searches, and preserving the information for the long term. This also discusses methods of preserving printed books and magazines and making sure that information in those publications can be easily searched and retrieved.

Mocavo:  A Comparison of the Best (?) Genealogy Search Engine versus Google
Mocavo is a search engine that many people have never heard of. However, it is designed for use by genealogists and often can find information that is buried within thousands of "hits" when searching on Google. This lecture describes Mocavo in some detail, including the new data matching and monitoring for new data features. This lecture will include a live demonstration searching for information suggested by the audience.
Putting the Genes in Genealogy
A serious look at the possibility that today's genealogists may become the lifesavers of family and loved ones in the near future.
