GenFriends: Conference Keeper- A Tool for Every Genealogist with Tami Osmer Mize

In this episode, Tami Osmer Mize joins us to talk about Conference Keeper.
 A website dedicated to placing genealogy conferences, events, webinars, scholarships, contests and more in one easy to find spot!

Tami tells us how the website came to be and shows us how to navigate the site to get the information we are looking for.

She also shares her appreciation for Conference Keeper receiving the Seton Shields Genealogy Grant from Meagan Smolenyak Smolenyack.

If you belong to a Genealogy Society or other organization that has events or programs you would like to promote, this is the site for you. 
Using the submission form it's easy to add it to the calendar.
Looking for an event? Just click on the map and see what is going on in the area!

For those looking to speaking opportunities, there is a tab to show the current "Calls for Papers"

Want to know when and where to find genealogy conferences? 
There's a page for that too!

Did you know there are scholarships and contests to help you pay for the cost of Conferences and Institutes? Click on the link to see what's available!

Tami also has plans to add more content in the future. 
She's looking to add a Genealogy Education tab.

Watch as GenFriends welcomes Tami and see why Conference Keeper is truly a tool for every genealogist!

Conference Keeper is definitely a go-to site for those of us on the panel.
