KDLA is my favorite archive but then I'm a little biased since
I live in Kentucky and have several families who settled there
by the very early 1800s. If you have Kentucky ancestors
you should definitely visit them - the staff is great.
FamilySearch had a big presence in the Exhibit Hall with
an area that equaled 10 booths and they were always busy.
1000memories sponsored a breakfast panel on Thursday morning
featuring DearMYRTLE and Josh Taylor along with Jonathan Good
from 1000memories. The discussion center on involving the younger
generation in genealogy. Before FGS Caroline Pointer took a look at
1000memories and shared her thoughts at For Your Family Story.
A Y DNA test from FTDNA proved that a suspected
surname change in my family did, in fact, happen.
This has been a great conference and
I will talk more about that in a later post.
