At the end of April 2014, FamilySearch.org announced a unique partnership with three genealogical database companies: Ancestry.com, Findmypast and MyHeritage.

Emails were sent in May, and will continue to be sent for the rest of 2014 to members with family history callings, including family history consultants, family history center directors, stake indexing directors, and high priests group leaders, inviting them to

IDEA SHARING

A crowd favorite activity, Idea Sharing, will return for this year’s LDSTech Conference.

Last year the Ideas Sharing session had ideas shared which included new apps for picture/graphic sharing, map apps, and new ideas about other tools and apps. The 15-minute presentation times were held for a couple of hours each day, without any presentation being duplicated. That made for more than a dozen presentations during the two days. Its popularity has made it a regular feature of the Conference.  Click here to request a time slot. 

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

A new activity “birds of a feather” for people to gather and discuss common ideas, issues, and undocumented features. On Thursday after the Conference, from 4:30 – 5:30, the new ‘birds of a feather’ groups can gather for opportunities to network, learn about a bunch of the latest updates, and gather with like-minded techies to just talk about projects, innovations, new approaches, and ways to accomplish all kinds of things...

QuestionJim_Adams

What do you do at the Church?

Answer

As a member of the Information and Communications Systems department (ICS) Mobile Device Team, I help coordinate cellular communications for Church headquarters. That includes ordering cell phones and mobile broadband data cards for laptops, helping employees with an array of phone issues, and generally safeguarding the Church’s investment in this popular business tool.

Question

What role do you think the Mobile Device Team plays in the Church organization?

Answer

We try to make the employees’ mobile device experience as smooth and trouble-free as possible. For example, a lost, damaged, or stolen cell phone can represent a minor tragedy in the life of a citizen of the 21st century! We resolve problems as painlessly as possible by having a small stock of lightly-used surplus devices available for immediate replacement. This minimizes “phoneless” down-time. Without this service, hundreds of dollars would be spent on each replacement phone, so we feel we save the Church significant dollars as we help maximize employee productivity.
