The one thing about being in SLC during conference week would be the opportunities to meet new and old friends. Monday February 9, I started the time going to the Family History Library I knew Dear Myrtle was going to be in the library. A quick chance to say hello, and then off to do my research.
Dear Myrtle was set up and in the green room, Barry Kline was the camera man, and Jill Ball and other friends were in room. Next thing, we are live! How great an opportunity to see the HOA in person, and best of all get to listen to the drop in guests. See the You Tube video from that morning.
With great enthusiasm I’ve been selected to be an FGS Ambassador for the FGS 2015/ Rootstech Conference. This will be my first FGS Conference. I attended my first Rootstech and then Jamboree by Southern California Genealogy Society last year.
I’m very much looking forward to February 11-14 in Salt Lake City. There are great classes, with awesome lecturers and the opportunity to go to Salt Lake City Family History Library! Let’s not forget there are so many great networking opportunities with fellow genealogist. The awesome vendor hall to show us the latest and greatest products and gadgets, as well as the couch area with the mini presentations. This was a great way also to catch some of those vendors or speakers that you didn’t have time to go to their class. Remember not everyone is a professional, but we all have one thing in common, climbing our family trees.
There is still time for you to register for FGS2015/Rootstech, February 11-14 in Salt Lake City.
