For those of us out of state and unable to attend, is there some opportunity in the future to have streaming of your lectures, or other computer access?

Yes, we are looking into this. In addition, we have posted a list of places we will be teaching around the country at:

Any chance you will have the new RootsMagic 4.0 book available at the Salt Lake Expo?

I see that there are a number of opportunities to learn about RootsMagic, but done west of the Mississippi. Are you going to have some sessions on the East Coast?

Mark, we are hoping to have the books for the Salt Lake Expo.

Several of the upcoming conferences are east of the Mississippi (Little Rock, Ft Wayne, Toledo, Knoxville). We don’t currently have any scheduled for the east coast, but we could add additional conferences down the road. We were in North Carolina earlier this year (May).

Am obtaining a better understanding of the research and material.
