Riverton FamilySearch Library to Host Two Exciting Events This Month

Saturday Seminar

On June 16, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, the Riverton FamilySearch Library will host its Saturday Seminar on using Google Search to find your ancestors.

In his keynote presentation, “Using Google Search to Connect with Your Past,” speaker Michael D. Rossetti will use live Google search examples to demonstrate tips and techniques for maximizing the efficiency of your family history research on the Internet.

Michael is a software engineer and has worked for some of the most exciting companies in the computer world: Google, Apple, Intuit, and Informix. He has as also worked for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Brigham Young University. He has had the opportunity to work with both software and hardware on everything from nuclear reactor simulators to today’s Google Chrome browser. Lately, Mike has been spending his time assisting Google in the development of web page tagging standards that will help improve the quality of family history-related search results.

Following the 9:00 a.m. keynote presentation, there will be two blocks of four classes each that will cover topics of interest to both beginning and advanced family history enthusiasts. For more details, go to
