Travel Tuesday "Gone to Texas" FGS Conference Tuesday August 26, 2014

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

Off to FGS (Federation of Genealogical Societies) Conference in San Antonio Texas.  Tuesday August 26- Up at O dark hundred this morning and off to Las Vegas first and then onto final destination of San Antonio Texas and the Marriott Riverwalk Hotel.

As I said I am staying at the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk Hotel..... by the way my room is on the 23rd floor  (out of 30 floors) overlooking the riverwalk, the river and foresty area with the city of San Antonio in the background. I can observe all of this from my wicker chair on my huge outside balcony. AND yes it would be very nice if it wasn't sooooooooooo hot and humid, so I watch from the inside of my air conditioned room through the glass, best I can do at the moment. The temperature today is 98 and I believe the humidity level is the same, HOT much too humid or hot for me. I know I know I live in Sacramento and it is hot there too but DRY not humid.

The Henry B Gonzales Convention Center is directly across the street on the other side of the hotel. Beautiful building and very large, We were able to pick up our packets at registration Tuesday evening 3-7p. I had forgotten that Tuesday is Librarian Day so there were a lot of people who already attended a day of conference as the rest of us are just arriving. Lois I thought about you when I was visiting with some of the Library attendees.  

Nice bag sponsored by FIND MY PAST with all sorts of goodies, papers and promises of help & resources. The catch phrase is "Gone to Texas" and you can't get too much further into Texas than here.

So now that I have my bag, name tag & tickets for various events, packet of goodies and now that I feel a little more organized and of course cooled down quite a bit......  I am off to a dinner presentation sponsored by FamilySearch for the blogger and media community. Free food/dinner is always good.
