Tomorrow, I will be headed off to the National Genealogy Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. I will admit it has been on my wish list for a couple of years. My hope is three fold, to return with some new in sites in tearing down the brick walls in my own family research, to inspire my creative side for some new magazine articles and to have some fun. I am expecting a busy 4 days. I have scanned the extensive list of lectures available and highlighted my favourites. I have loaded my voice recorder with some fresh batteries and bought a new pen and notebook for the occasion. I'm looking forward to wandering through the exhibits to see what the genealogy world has to offer and to meeting some interesting people who may offer some in sites into my research. However I would be lying if I thought I wasn't looking forward to the 80 degree weather they are having in North Carolina. In Southern Ontario, with frost warnings still imminent I suspect it will be a few more weeks before we start to see summer weather on a daily basis.
I will be sure to share my experience with you when I return and for those who haven't been to conference before I will let you know how the value measures up.
