Join us for the next episode of FGS Radio -My Society, an Internet radio show on Blog talk Radio presented by the Federation of Genealogical Societies. This week’s episode hosted by Thomas MacEntee is entitled Digital Publishing for Preservation and Community Building. Our special guest will be Mark Weaver of Ancestry.com. Mark will discuss how digital publishing can be used to achieve society’s goals – both in terms of needing to preserve your historical documents but also leverage published content to better serve and promote your society. He will also introduce Ancestry’s fledgling Ancestry Content Publisher program and share examples of how it’s being used today by various institutions to provide open access to its collections and increase reach to potential members.. We’ll also be speaking with Debbie Mieszala CG?as our FGS 2011 Conference Speaker of the Week about upcoming presentations at the conference in Springfield, Illinois this September. And finally we’ll be highlighting the Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies in our weekly Society Spotlight feature. Tune in to FGS Radio – My Society each week to learn more about genealogy societies and join in a discussion of the issues impacting the genealogical community.
