 GeneaBloggers Members – BEADS!

This year’s edition of GeneaBloggers beads – with cowboy hats and cacti – are generously sponsored by MyHeritage. If you’ve signed up with us and your blog is currently listed on, stop by Booth 601/603 in the FGS 2014 Exhibit Hall and pick up your set. And while you’re there make sure to thank MyHeritage for their support of GeneaBloggers!

Stop By and Say Howdy!

I’ll be there presenting four lectures plus an Exhibit Hall session beginning on Wednesday 28 August 2014 – I can’t wait to meet up with my genealogy colleagues and I look forward to making new genealogy friends. If you are at FGS 2014, please stop and say hello – when I’m not lecturing, you’ll find my in the Exhibit Hall talking with vendors and other attendees.
