    Day 4 Highlights and Photos from #NGS2013

    NGS 2

    So, what's with the construction hat?

    When word went out from NGS about the conference Twitter Challenge, I decided to join the spirit of the event by tweeting the ten tasks for a chance to win registration to the NGS 2014 Conference in Richmond, Virginia. Part of the challenge was to incorporate the conference theme in each tweet; the hat seemed appropriate for Building New Bridges and my grandson didn't seem to miss it from the toy box.

    Stay tuned for a recap of the challenge contest and more photos!

    Exhibit Hall Highlights

    I usually spend quite a bit of conference time in the exhibit hall checking out new services and products, but this time it was hard to find time between sessions and meet-ups to walk the aisles of the hall. I finally scheduled some time Saturday to see what's new. 

    Author Christy Leskovar

    I met author Christy Leskovar (right) with her mom and chatted about her new family history books, One Night in a Bad Inn  and Finding the Bad Inn: Discovering My Family's Hidden Past .

    Polish Mission

    Cecile Wendt Jensen and Dr. Hal Learman of the Polish Mission in Detroit, Michigan gave me a brief introduction to Polish geography! Now I know where to turn when I start working seriously on my Pomeranian and Prussian lines. Cecile's introductory book Sto Lat: A Modern Guide to Polish Genealogy looks like it will be a big help!

    Treelines

    Snapped this photo with Tammy of Treelines online timeline software as part of the NGS Tweet Challenge. Can't wait to give this program a test-drive. They won the Developer's Award at Roots Tech.

    Lovely. I feel as if I've taken a stroll in the exhibit hall.
