Yesterday I posted a review about the Family Tree University Virtual Conference (#FTUVC) as soon as the conference had ended and while my thoughts were still fresh. I guess I jumped the gun, since I now need to add this update. I’ll explain from the beginning…
There was one drawback to the discussion boards during the VC — if you wanted to save anything that was posted, you had to copy/paste each individual post into another document. I tried a few ways to collate a number of the discussions into one page to make the process easier, but the system never let me open more then 10 posts a a time. Thus the sheer number of posts (at last count there were over 500) made a copy/paste of the entire discussion board unfeasible. I did save bits and pieces here and there, but there was a lot of extra information shared by attendees that I know would be terrific to have had I found the time to copy/paste over the weekend (which I didn’t).
Fast forward to today and I have yet another ‘gold star’ for the conference coordinators: tonight I received an email with a pdf transcript of the discussion board postings. This is a gem in itself. Kudos to the coordinators for thinking of literally everything.
I think I made my point yesterday, but just in case I’ll clarify here: The VC was a terrific experience, and one that I would highly recommend to anyone interested in genealogy, from beginner, to basic family history hobbyist, to pro. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
