Today was a lot of fun, especially meeting fellow bloggers in person. I saw Linda of Documenting the Details, Jenny of Are My Roots Showing, DearMYRTLE, and Tonia of Tonia's Roots. I saw tweets from other bloggers, Free Genealogy Resources and Southern Graves, but I didn't see the bloggers themselves.
I attended four classes today: The Power of DNA by Anna Swayne, 8 Simple Steps for Self-Help Genealogy by Ann Osisek, Georgia Land Records by Arlene Eakle, and The Clothesline Approach to Documentation and Analysis by DearMYRTLE. I really enjoyed all of the classes and learned something in each one. Even when I already knew some of the information, the presenters were able to give new perspectives. I tweeted a few interesting quotes:
"Over 1 Million people have tested their DNA for #genealogy purposes" - Anna Swayne
"Can't be said enough: Don't just go "up the tree" - you also need to go "out the tree" and research siblings and cousins" - Ann Osisek
"So says @DearMYRTLE: Explain how you came to your research conclusion, "leave an audit trail""I did not get a chance to visit any of the exhibit booths today, but I plan to do so tomorrow. There doesn't seem to be enough time for booths between classes! I think I'll skip a class tomorrow to make time.
