    2010 Jamboree Welcome Bags Hit a Home Run

    As the local “connection” for the GeneaBloggers Jamboree Welcome Bag project, packages have been arriving at my door almost daily from generous genealogy vendors for the 2010 Welcome Bags.

    Last night, the Bag Team (Amy Coffin, Thomas MacEntee, Joan Miller, and me) met at my house to pack bags and coordinate distribution to GeneaBloggers members who rsvp’d to the Jamboree Meetup. Everyone agreed that the lucky recipients will be bowled over by the fantastic contributions of genealogy products included in the bags. We even tucked in a few comfort-items and fun gear to help GeneaBloggers move into the Jamboree spirit.

    Bloggers are sure to share their experiences as they sample the Welcome Bag products, and I hope you will let the bloggers and vendors know if you find reviews and information helpful with your own genealogy research.

    You guys are making this sound like so much fun. I bet you had a blast getting all the bags together and having a wonderful social time together. Someday I hope to attend one of these Jamboree's and join in the fun.

    Have a super time this week-end.

    Really neat, thanks for the report. Hope you'll take a moment to visit the Jamboree bookstore for my two books, "13 Ways to Tell Your Ancestor Stories," and "Back to the Homeplace." Hope a few folks are moved to buy one or both. Thanks, again,

    Oh Penelope! Wish I was there. Say hi to everyone for me!

    Have a wonderful time at the Jamboree. Our thoughts are with you, all the way from New Hampshire!

    Thank you, one and all, for following along. Dr. Bill, I WANTED to find your book, but missed it. Alas...

    Jamboree was great and a good time had by all. More to come
