 It's not too early to plan for May 2012.  Make your hotel reservations now if you have the slightest thought about attending the NGS Conference in Cincninati, Ohio.  The NGS blog already has helpful information about the venue, hotels, attractions and research opportunities in the region.  I mapped the three counties where my ancestors lived in Ohio -  60 miles from the conference site!  Looks like a pre- or post-conference side trip will be involved for me!  Did you know that Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society is a member of NGS?  Will I see you there?  I wonder where WKRP is...but I digress

The following press release was received on November 20, 2011:
