I am a retired online school teacher. During July 2007 - January 2010, and September 2011 - March 2014, I provided part-time support for https://familysearch.org This is very rewarding. I have helped many with the free Personal Ancestral File 5 (PAF5) software. I continue to help others with the Family Tree and related FamilySearch products.
Since April 2010, I was an assistant director of Edmonton Riverbend Family History Centre. In recent months I was director of this FHC. I have a FHC blog at Bill's Family History Center Blog For information the Latter-day Saints and family history click http://mormon.org/

I have been enjoying the Online Services Portal at the Family History Center for the past few weeks. It is wonderful to be able to do census searches (and paste the transcriptions into my PAF notes) and save copies of the digitized census pages to my flash drive ... for FREE! This would cost me a lot if I wanted to access these databases from home, but they are free at the FHC. Thank you!
