If you've ever written or spoken about genealogy, or read or heard anyone writing or speaking about genealogy, or written or spoken about writing, hearing, reading or speaking about genealogy, Megan Smolenyak2 wants to hear from you.
She's preparing a presentation for the FGS Conference to be held this summer in Boston, and is looking to include "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, I’d like to know what it is about this person’s writing or speaking that appeals to you – 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. [Link]As for me, I like any speaker who demonstrates both proficiency in and affection for her subject, and who ends by busting a watermelon with a big sledgehammer.
