Fun at OGS

This weekend I am speaking, and hanging out, at the Ohio Genealogical Society annual conference.
 It is being held at the Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio which, let's face it, genealogy and swimsuits are an interesting combination.  At least no one has attended (that I know of) a lecture in their swimsuit.

Yesterday I gave a workshop about preparing your papers for a lineage society application. My take away, wow... I can talk for 2 hours straight.  Oh, and that audience participation, while scary for the presenter, makes long lectures more entertaining. It is something that I will have to do again.

On Saturday, I will be talking about one of my favorite places to research, The Library of Virginia.  Such a great place, with so many wonderful resources.

If you are at the conference make sure to say hi!  I am at The In-Depth Genealogist booth and would be happy to see you.

  1. Well, that location is sure NextGen friendly at least - attendees with young families can make a vacation out of it! Glad your first workshop went well! :)
