Barry Ewell offered some great insights as he showed us what we could learn by following the example of Sherlock Holmes. The people of Genline.com are always gracious and helpful, and despite technical difficulties, Kathy Meade gave a great presentation on Swedish online research. I don't spend nearly enough time on my Swedish ancestors. I need to change that, soon, hopefully. But first I need to focus on my Scottish lines a bit longer, they seem to be the ones haunting me lately.
I could go on and on, but I'll save it and just put in a plug for the syllabus, found at FamilyHistoryExpos.com :)
Two newcomers really caught my eye: Genlighten and Fampros.com. A friend of mine and I have talked for a while about doing something just like these sites have done, so I was glad to see they saved us the trouble. Simply put, they are trying to hook up those with research abilities with those who need the help, and vice versa. Check them out.
LDSJournal was also in attendance. They are still in beta, but I know I'm thinking of signing up ;)
The cochlear attaches via a magnet, whereas the BAHA "snaps" on. Cochlears work by artificially stimulating the auditory nerves. I'm yet to actually make sense of most the information I've found on-line for the BAHA (medicalese--yeesh! I'll pull out a medical dictionary soon ;) ) but from what Mrs. Bassett was telling me, the BAHA works when there are no nerves to stimulate.
