I’ll be posting highlights from my expereiences from FGS this week but I’m going to start a little backwards with my thank yous today…

The walkway to the dock under the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Yesterday I bid farewell to Pittsburgh after a four days chock-full of genealogy and it feels a little like I’m coming out of the light and being dumped back in the real world. I enjoy conferences as a chance to meet people, to learn new research techniques and records sources, and to just commiserate with and support people in our shared obsession. Many thanks to all the people I chatted with between classes—especially my Michigan and Indiana friends. You all were the reason this was such a fun week and I hope to see you in Fort Wayne next year.

Happy hunting!

GourdsI hope everyone is enjoying their time with friends and family! And I thank you all for joining me in my research both in person and from afar. This blog is both to keep me motivated and to bring people together and from my point of view it is working. Thank you for all your kind comments, stories, and support!

This lovely fall shot is from our Traverse trip in 2009 taken in front of Chateau Grand Traverse on Old Mission Peninsula.

Have a wonderful holiday!
