FGS Conference - Friday & Saturday

We are back on the road again and are currently visiting genealogy related "cousins" in Lake Zurich, IL.  I'll try and cover as much as I can remember of last Friday & Saturday sessions.

I also volunteered as Room Monitor for several sessions throughout the four days.
Sessions I attended were:
Demystifying Eastern European Research
Using Records in the National Archives: A Researcher's View
Dealing with Digital Artifacts
Digital Scrapbooking
Developing Effective Research Strategies
Michigan Roots: Genealogy Research in the Wolverine State
Twitter - It's Not Just "What I Had For Breakfast" Anymore

On Saturday night my husband and I were invited to join Dick Eastman and other genealogists' to a wonderful buffet dinner on the 29th floor of the Hilton.  No PowerPoint slides, no Room Monitors, no speeches, just fun, food and drinks.  What a wonderful way to close out this year's FGS Conference.  Maybe I'll see them all next year!
