Those Texans Sure Know How to Throw a Genealogy Conference!
Those Texans sure know how to throw a party! TxSGS definitely held up to one of Texas’ well-known sayings, “Everything’s bigger in Texas”! What a fantastic, fun filled, 2-day, live event of top-tier genealogical education that was! The genealogical presentations, on a wide variety of topics and by so many well-known speakers, were top notch! They also had some fantastic hosts, sponsors, and exhibitors for the event! But wait, that wasn’t, nor is, all there is to their outstanding genealogical event of the year! They kicked off their event 5 days earlier with pre-conference fun! Using the Whova all-in-one event management platform, which was my first time ever experiencing it. With this platform, the event hosts were able to set up some pretty cool features that dramatically enhanced their program, from challenges, games, networking, photo galleries, expo hall, and more! The coolest part, the majority stay up forever, so you can continue networking! And it’s nowhere near being over! TxSGS Live had 10 live sessions with Q&As, but that was nowhere near the only part of the event! There are still the other 36 pre-recorded, just for this event, sessions that start today, 2 days after the live portion, and available until February 10th! So, this event is really a 14 week-long, fun-filled, fantastic, all-in-one event! I am so honored to have been able to speak for them! If I hadn’t, I may never have known how amazing this event is!
What Did We Get to Do in the Whova Platform and at This Event?
Which Sessions Were at the Live Portion of the Event?
And, since unlike many other events where presentations overlap and these did not, I got to watch them all!
All the Presentations/Tracks for This Event
Sadly, I have to say that I most likely will not have time to watch all the other 36 presentations by well-known speakers, including my own (“Who Is That Mystery DNA Match?), as I’m not sure I have that kind of time. I will, however, carefully choose what seems to be the most useful to me.
If you missed this fantastic event, there is always next year, and trust me, you do not want to miss out on this opportunity!
