Those Places Thursday

Editor's note: Today's post was written Sandra Gardner-Benward

More opportunities ……… remembering back only a couple of weeks ago & the NGS Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now you can purchase CD’s of many of the classes presented there. Good News, you can look through their list of CD’s.  (actually you can go back as far as their 2008 conference). This is amazing to me. If you are researching a certain area or a subject I’ll bet that you can find that their  CD’s are a great way to listen to experts and learn at your own pace. You can start and stop the CD as much as you need too. It gives you an opportunity to take notes, rewind, rewind, rewind, create list of suggestions of records to research. This also gives you an opportunity to hear speakers and subjects that may not be typically available at a local society’s meeting or conference.  Check it out JAMB    

Mark your calendar 21-24 August 2013 in Fort Wayne Indiana for the FGS Conference. Don’t know what Fort Wayne, Indiana is all about? Located there is the Allen County Public Library which houses the second largest Genealogical section. Oh yes it is a big deal.

Here I am in Burbank California for the 44th Annual Southern California Jamboree.  What a quiet and relaxing place to be, especially when Sacramento area is forecast for 104-108 degrees OUCH!!  I ended up sitting in the courtyard between Marriott’s Hotel and the Convention Center. Wow, quiet, a nice cool breeze – so relaxing I almost fell asleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! But I didn’t. 

It is the calm before the storm…
                                                        Very little activity in the hotel lobby yet

Very  little activity in the social/ blogging area
A little more activity- doesn't this look refreshing? 

                  A couple of people in the outside sitting area. Sure is relaxing and quiet right now

And the courtyard between the hotel and the convention center will have a set up for breakfast foods in the morning and then change over at noon to lunch foods. It will also be the center for the DNA day registration. Right now it is a little slice of heaven.

The Convention Center Hub area - eerie and quiet. Registration is straight ahead. Raffles down the right side, exhibit hall near right side ,some classrooms down at the end of the hall and tents outside but not yet
.........and up this hall will be many many large rounds tables each for a different discussion.   On Sunday it will be all societies showing off and that includes Root Cellar) Food court will be set up outside to the right and another entrance to the exhibit hall
