We are nearing the end of the second day of a four day genealogy conference. That’s four days of classes from some of the best and the brightest educators in the genealogy community. Four days in an exhibit hall with dozens of genealogy companies, organizations and societies all talking about their latest and greatest content, products, and services. Four days meeting our members, talking to you, listening to your research challenges, and helping you break through your brick walls. Four days with hundreds and hundreds of people who “get it.”
In the last two days I have learned new things. I have been reminded of genealogy basics. I have been challenged by a dozen or more people in a great round of Stump the Genealogist!
We have given away free subscriptions and free DNA kits in anticipation-filled drawings. We have helped hundreds of people learn how to search smarter, how to discover what records exist online, and how to analyze the records they’ve already found to help them move their research along.
I LOVE genealogy conferences!
I have have been live tweeting some of the goings on here in Cincinnati this week. Go catch up on those tweets and then follow along for the next two days.
If you would like to join us at a genealogy conference or event, take a look at our 2012 schedule to see where we will be for the rest of the year. I would love to meet you, hear your genealogy stories, and help you with your most intriguing research challenge.
