The National Genealogical Society conference, “Our American Mosaic,” is scheduled May 24-28 in Sacramento. CGS is the local host society! More than a dozen CGS members are among the speakers. We have been highlighting them over the past weeks.
STEWART BLANDÓN TRAIMAN is a genealogy blogger, lecturer, and volunteer working to raise awareness that everyone has LGBTQ folk in their family trees and instructing on how to document them honestly. He is a former CGS Board Member and recipient of a Genie Award for his service to CGS. He previously worked in the healthcare industry and is experienced in technology and data analysis. His presentation on Friday, May 27, is “Excel for Genealogists: Using Analytics to Reveal Hidden Stories.” On Saturday, May 28, he presents “LGBTQIA+ Genealogy: Exploring Diversity in Your Family History.”
