  5. I'm looking forward to another RootsTech. I haven't missed one yet and there is an excellent palette of topics to choose from.

    EXIF Marks the Spot: The critical need for metadata portability
    - I've presented on data portability and I'm curious to learn someone else's take on the issue.
    Tracing Slavery With DNA & Genealogy
    - I love presentations by Nicka Smith and this one will blend several topics of interest.
    Organizing and Documenting Plantation Slaves
    - Ari is detailed and knowledgeable and a terrific presenter.

  6. Peggy,

    Narrowing down my choices to only three was difficult!

    “Your DNA Support System”
    “How I Built My Own Brick Wall”
    “Organizing Your DNA Testing”
