FGS 2010 - Day 3

Time really does fly when you're having fun. Seems like I just arrived in Knoxville and I'm already back home.

Since I had to pack up and load the car this morning, I skipped the 8 AM session but attended four sessions on this last day of the conference before heading home.

"The Anatomy of a Will and the Records It Spawns" presented by Christine Rose provided some great tips to put to use right away.

The other three sessions were "The Land Grant Processes of North Carolina and Tennessee" presented by J. Mark Lowe, "Using Georgia's Land Lotteries to Prove Family Relationships" presented by Susan B. Sloan, "From Ulster to the Carolinas: The Scots-Irish" presented by David E. Rencher. These all deal with things I need to get into at some point so these sessions will help me out down the road.

Once again there was always at least one other blogger in every session. Seven of us - Tina Lyons (and hubby), Greta Koehl (and hubby), Tonia Kendrick, Jennifer Trahan, Amy Coffin and Missy Corley - took one last walk to Market Square for lunch. It was a great three days and having this crowd to hang out with made it even better.

I'll have a wrap-up post about FGS sometime tomorrow after I get rested up.

See GeneaBloggers for a compiled listing of posts about FGS 2010.


  1. Glad you had such a great time! I enjoyed reading about it.

  2. So nice to get to know you in person. Hope we have future conferences together and perhaps also get to visit when I go on research trips.

  3. Greta, Anytime you're heading to KY, give me a call.
