Conference Day Three

Today was the last day of conference! It was sad to see everyone go but I had an amazing time, all the classes were amazing! I learned so much not only about my great grandfather but about genealogy in general. Conferences offer so much for all different types of genealogists! So if your thinking about attending conference, here is my advice: GO! Go as soon as you can, conference is only of the most amazingly wonderful experiences ever!!!

Confrence Day 2

so angryIMG_0751Today was absolutely amazing. Thank to Lisa Louise Cook’s class on googles tools, I found some amazing research on my great grandfather. I found a website called together we served which led to his own personal website describing what he did, his ranks, and how he got his medals and ribbons in the Army. I really recommend getting Lisa cooks New google toolbox book, I haven’t read it yet but if its anything like her class, its going to be so helpful.

We also participated in the global family reunion! We sang along to “We are Family” and threw beach balls around, and just had a lot of fun!

Conference day one

Today was the first day of conference and I had so much fun! My mom and I got there a bit early so I got to work on my computer for a bit.

Then I had a class on Emergency preparedness and keeping your genealogy safe here is a very important rule I learned from Denise Levenick; you should have 3 copies of everything, on at least 2 different media, and 1 in a off site location. You can remember it with just 3..2..1

I also went to a extremely helpful class on how to find information through geography, I also got to spend a lot of time with my mom, which is good, we spend so much time looking in to history we sometime forget were also making history.
