June 27 - And The Guest Author Is . . .

Volunteer Genealogical Photography:
Tips and Techniques

Miriam Robbins Midkiff is a a volunteer with both Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) and Find A Grave. In the June 20, Friday From the Collectors, she will discuss the proper etiquette, tips and techniques of both those requesting and those fulfilling requests for photographs of tombstones, locations, or items. So if you've wondered how or where to start your request, or how to properly fulfill one, this will be the perfect article!

Miriam is one of the most recognized names and faces in the world of GeneaBloggers. She authors the two widely read blogs; AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors and AnceStories2: Stories of Me for My Descendants. Recently Miriam was featured in an online interview with Google Book Search about the use of Goggle Books in conjunction with family history research.

I spend the last Sunday of each month with Miriam and other GeneaBloggers at her Scanfest; where we scan and chat, similar to an old time Quilting Bee. This has become a staple of the GeneaBlogging community and fun to boot!

Miriam lectures and writes about genealogy from Spokane, Washington, as well as teaching both beginning and intermediate courses in Online Genealogy through the local community college district.

She is an active member of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society. It was at one of the Society's events that I met Miriam and I can tell you, she is as dynamic in person as she is on the page/screen. And a genuinely lovely person.

So join Shades, June 27 when we will be treated to the benefit of Miriam's knowledge regarding Volunteer Genealogical Photography: Tips and Techniques.

See You Then!
