Pamela lectures nationally and locally on a wide range of topics, speaking frequently at society meetings, conferences and presenting full-day workshops. She is a professional researcher and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Genealogical Speakers Bureau and several local societies. Pamela has served on the board of many societies. She played a key role in the success of the National Genealogical Society Conference held in Sacramento in 2004. Pamela has appeared on local television and radio talk shows to discuss genealogy and has written and appeared in several genealogy instructional videos aired on local TV. She believes the best part of genealogy is the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people.
Pamela will be presenting two classes:
I Can't Do My Research, the Courthouse Burned: Researching Burned Counties: Are you stuck in a “Burned County?” Burned counties (counties with extensive records loss due to fire, flood, or other disasters) offer difficult challenges for genealogists. This class will help you discover creative ways to outwit the “Burned County” problem.
Evaluating Evidence: This class will present research practices to help you separate fact from fiction and how to document its degree of reliability.
