Family History Expo Mesa Arizona January 22-23

I can't pick out just one thing about the Expo I enjoyed the most.  There were so many wonderful classes, and people.  I had a wonderful time filling in at the Genealogy Gems booth, I met some wonderful folks that stopped by and had the opportunity to talk with other vendors at the show.  The banquet was a lot of fun and I had the opportunity to meet Bruce Buzbee of Rootsmagic and Thomas MacEntee of blog, Facebook and Twitter fame and best of all spend some time with Lacey and Lisa Louise Cooke.  Lisa Louise and Lacey  engineered a great live podcast after dinner was served.  I attended many classes my mind was jam packed with information.  Now I need to sit back and go through all of the information and goodies I picked while I was there.

Hey Amy

It was nice to meet you this past weekend in Mesa and to sit at the same table during the Family History Expo banquet.

Why did I not know about your great genealogy blog?

You’ve got a great genealogy blog and I’ve added it to the blog list at GeneaBloggers.

In addition, I’ve made sure your blog is listed in our search engine (http://www.geneabloggers.com/search-geneablogger-member-blogs/) so that it may be searched along with over 800 other genealogy blogs.

Finally, I will also highlight your blog in my weekly This Week’s New Genealogy Blogs post on Saturday, 30 January 2010.
