RootsTech T-Shirt Challenge
So...I have this idea for RootsTech . . . if you like the idea, add your comments and reshare. OK - so, for years, I've been meeting with software publishers, hardware manufacturers, attending conferences and participating in road races and such. Over time I've accumulated sooo many t-shirts, that I began to take some of the more interesting ones that I thought might have 'historical significance' some day and, well, I put them aside. Last week while unpacking yet another bin left from a somewhat recent move, I found that bin and what a laugh I had. Some of these brand new t-shirts are 20 years old. Genealogy and technology were the most common theme. It made me wonder who else had some good ones. Some of the companies and products are long gone, but others still doing well. I know my friend +Paul Allen may have at least one, but how about YOU?

What is the oldest or most interesting Genealogy Technology t-shirt you can find? And if it doesn't fit, don't worry, bring it along anyway! We'll take some photos for the RootsTech archive . . . it will add a nice walk down memory lane!

Heck, I'm still trying to catch up with all the great websites and blogs by new and 'old' genealogists and/or groups! Chula Vista Genealogy society has great info on it to tease me into doing more research in new places.

Innovative Solutions for Genealogy & Family History Brands Worldwide
Introduction
The Business of Genealogy & Family History
Once considered a hobby reserved for a narrow segment of seniors, genealogy is now recognized as a fertile worldwide market for a wide range of family history products and services.
 
For some, the pursuit of their ancestral heritage is little more than an occasional pasttime, but for others it can become an all-consuming obsession. Still others have turned this into their full-time profession, either conducting research for others or sharing their expertise through articles, books, classes, lectures, and a range of other traditional and technology-based offerings.
 
Technology
In an increasingly connected world, technology solutions have connected family historians in ways barely imaginable a decade ago. Virtual meetings are now commonplace, crowd-sourcing enables large-scale projects to become reality, and preservation and sharing have become the norm. 
 
Societies & Local Groups
For decades, a network of thousands of clubs and organizations throughout the world have served the interests of family history enthusiasts - from beginner to seasoned professional. As the Internet has grown to become a common tool used by many (and mis-used in a few cases), some have forgotten the critically important role that local, regional, and national societies still play to this day. It is critical that societies embrace available technology as it continues to mature to ensure a strong future for their organizations.
 
Experience is Critical
If you have a product or service for the family history market, there has never been a better time to share your message.
 
My in-depth experience in technology, genealogy, marketing and business development make me uniquely suited to help you develop and execute your plan for defining and reaching this growing worldwide market.
