11:10 - Noon MDT: KATHRYN GRANT on USING THE TIMELINE GRID: PRACTICAL EXAMPLES

DESCRIPTION of TOPIC:
Kathryn Grant goes over a useful tool called the timeline grid that is free for all to use. It will help you track, organize and research your family history.

ABOUT KATHRYN GRANT:
After years on the sidelines, Kathryn began doing family history. Somewhat to her surprise, she discovered that she loved it! Her specialty is helping new family historians find success—and maybe even avoid some of the mistakes she's made. Kathryn teaches Sunday classes at the BYU Family History Library and presents at other family history events. Her column on family history ran in the Nauvoo Times for about a year and is still available online. In addition, she's a regular contributor to the FamilySearch blog. Kathryn works as a technical writer and instructional designer with a focus on usability and process improvement. Her current work assignment includes developing training used on mobile devices. Besides family history, she loves uplifting music, thought-provoking books, and fresh raspberries.
