Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society Spring Seminar & George Morgan ...... Saturday has come and gone. WOW!! what a great day and a very sucessful one too. Sold out Seminar, George Morgan for 4 different subjects, amazing raffle baskets, terrific lunches, super new book vendor Family Roots Publishing Co./Utah, Family Tree Inspirations vendor, Root Cellar table & great friends to share it with. Couldn't ask for a better day. First time we used the square for credit card usage...... no problems and it helped our sales. The only downside (if you want to look at it that way) was that it started raining after the Seminar started, yes, continued rain through lunch, and into the afternoon, but by the time we were ready to go home it was clear (cold & windy but no rain).
George spoke it us about "The Genealogist as CSI"; "Push & Pull: The Reasons for Migration"; "Sidestep Genealogy"; "Bring 'Em Back to Life: Developing an Ancestor Profile". My mind is whirling and on overload....... more reading & research, so much to consider, so much organizing to do, so many timelines to put together but so little time....... George: excellent examples and stories - great handouts.
.......and Diane & Denise have already started the plans for next year's Spring Seminar, 16 March 2013 with Thomas MacEntee. So save that date. Two other big announcements were Family History Day2012 at the California State Archives on October 13, 2012 (save the date) & Root Cellar's 2012 Family History Writing Contest. http://www.rootcellar.org/ (a little push for you to start writing one or more of your family stories- big prizes for the top three winners)
