Beta? - Forum post by lkessler in General Discussion - 23 Feb 2014
Will, In a weird sort of way, it makes me happy to know that you and some other users are that interested in Behold and want to see updates. If you've followed my blog you'll know I've been working on life events, which will be something new among genealogy software that I hope others wiil agree will really be ...
Going Paperless and Laptopless - Blog entry by lkessler - 15 Feb 2014
Last week I used #RootsTech to attempt the start of what may become a radical change to the way I work. It started with an experiment. I had said in an earlier blog post what items I would be carrying with me. At RootsTech 2012 the list included my digital camera, my cellphone, my laptop, a pen, a binder ...
13 Genealogy Programs from RootsTech - Blog entry by lkessler - 10 Feb 2014
At #RootsTech there were many vendors in the exhibition hall. I’m not sure what the total number of booths was, but it must have been close to 200. I think it took me over 6 hours to thoroughly go through the hall and talk to quite a few of the vendors. I’m always interested in any new genealogy software ...
My Analysis of RootsTech 2014 - Blog entry by lkessler - 9 Feb 2014
Four whirlwind days at #RootsTech. Overall it was what I hoped for and what I expected based on my experiences from 2012. The larger half of the Salt Palace Convention Center gave us enough space to mill around. The exhibition hall was almost too large with so many vendors, it was almost impossible to do them ...

RootsTech 2014 Day 2 - Blog entry by lkessler - 7 Feb 2014
We're now starting my third full day of #RootsTech activity. Lots happened again. Here's what: I got to the keynotes in the middle of the Legal Genealogist's talk. She was very dynamic.

RootsTech 2014 Innovators Summit - Blog entry by lkessler - 5 Feb 2014
Today was the day before the official start of #RootsTech 2014, and it was called the Innovator's Summit. There were probably about 400 people who attended the Keynote, and that was followed by 4 4 sessions with 4 speakers to choose from in each session. Today I was live tweeting a lot at the session using ...
The RootsTech Syllabi - Blog comment by lkessler - 1 Feb 2014
Baerbel, Don't feel you have to fill out the survey. It's more of a fun thing for the presentation. I may be putting my presentation up online after the talk, but there's not a lot of substance in the slides. They'll just be background to what I'll be saying during my talk. How do you like your Windows ...
