Family History Expo Mesa Arizona - Opening Day
What a wonderful day. The Expo brought renewed acquaintances and new friends I really enjoyed seeing fellow Pima County Genealogy members . The opening keynote by Arlene Eakle was very enjoyable. Arlene shared several ideas and stories of researching.
Colleen McHugh did a presentation during the diner hour in the Ballroom. Michelle Goodrum and I happily helped Colleen out my passing and gathering entries for her drawing for RootsMagic5 that the folks at RootsMagic so nicely donated.

The last program of the day was by Ruth Maness, AG. Her topic was “What Do I Do Now? Tools For Effective Family Tree Analysis. She took us through the research process, first looking at what we have and then trying to fill in the gaps of missing research. She also pointed out the different regional and denominational records that may be located.
I also broke down a purchased some software to begin digital scrapbooking. They assured me the even I could make beautiful pages with my family photos. As usual Roots Publishing has warmed u up my credit card - I purchased a book for myself and for my dear friend Barbara Salyer.
I also had the opportunity to purchase Lisa Louis Cooke’s new book Everything You Need to Know About How to Find Your Family History in Newspapers - and had it personalized to Princess Amy! Thank you Lisa!
