I am a retired online school teacher. I love family history. Since 2007, I have spent much of my time providing part-time support for the world's largest free family history site This is very rewarding. I have helped others with the Family Tree and related FamilySearch products.

So what is missing? Ron Tanner, that's what! 

Ron is a perpetual favorite as he is highly entertaining as well as being the general manager of Family Tree, Historical Records and other fascinating stuff! He can give us a glimpse of what is under consideration for future changes at Somehow his session did not get recorded. ... or did it?

A friend gave a link to where I could find several Ron Tanner videos, including a home video of much of Ron's RootsTech presentation.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Maybe your FHC can make use of some of these presentations,
