"Who are their People? My grandmother used to ask me this whenever we discussed anyone. She wanted to know family connections. Like her I want to know "My People". This blog is about that discovery.

Have You Registered ?



 If you have thought about registering for the National Genealogical Society Family History Conference that will be held in Richmond,Virginia in May of this year and have just not gotten it done yet, or haven't made up you mind to go, do so now!  You will receive $35 off the registration price if you register before March 24.
   There are so many wonderful classes being taught this year. They offer something for everyone whether you are a beginner or professional genealogist. You can learn different methods to find your family, information on specific areas and time periods, and how to use various websites and software along with so much more!
 In addition to the lectures and classes there are many social events too, including tours, and luncheons.
If you have already registered, it is not too late to add things to your calendar. I am still trying to decide which events to go to! They all look so interesting!
 The conference is a wonderful resource for learning and growth in your genealogical persuits. You will come away wishing it wasn't over and planning on again in the future. On top of all that,you will meet some of the best people in the world! Genealogists like you who have a love for family history, squeal at the sight of old pictures and hunt endlessly for those elusive documents. Many will become lifetime friends. If you're really lucky, you may meet a cousin or two!
  For more information about the conference and how to register go to Upfront With NGS, the official blog for the National Genealogical Society.

 Hope to see you there!

    2. Cheri, meeting up would be great. I am already meeting Wendy from Jollett Etc. on Friday of the conference. If you want to share a cup of tea or something it is probably easiest to email me . No idea why this shows I am anonymous. strange.

    3. Colleen, have you downloaded the app for the conference? If you do you can choose your classes and add yourself on to the attendees list. Once you do that, you can click on my name on the list and send a friend request. On your tab click the share schedule button and I will do the same. Maybe we will have a class together! Looks like you're not anonymous anymore! Lol!
