Enjoying fall conferences

My goodness, it's been a very long time since I posted anything. What have I been doing?

I was at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the first part of September. Wonderful speakers and convention center. It was a bit of a walk, but I needed the exercise!

I was able to enjoy some dirt-track racing (yep, I'm a fan!) in west-central Ohio before visiting the Allen County, Ohio, chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. They have such a great group. On October 25th I'll be back again giving two lectures on beginning research.

The Fulton Chapter, OGS, is having a beginners day at the Metamora/Evergreen Public Library in Metamora, Ohio. Stop by early and sign up for the event.

On November 8th, I'll be at the Montgomery Chapter, OGS. Check all these chapter websites for more information regarding events.

November 14 and 15th is the Florida State Genealogical Society. I have the great honor of being there, too.

As you can see, the fall is a great time to go to genealogical events. What a great way to enhance your knowledge about this fantastic hobby. Okay, maybe it is an addiction! It certainly is for me.

Enjoy the fall and I hope to see you at a seminar or conference.
