I’m excited about attending the Missouri State Genealogical Society’s conference in Columbia, Missouri, on August 4 and 5, which is suddenly just around the corner! Last month, when I registered, I blogged about why I love genealogy conferences so much. I find there’s always so much to learn, even when they’re in states my ancestors never lived in. This one, though, is pertinent to my research, since my Brown relatives lived in Missouri. (My mother was born in Jefferson City.) The theme of this year’s conference is “Show Me the Way Around the Brick Wall” and it features keynotes by Kathleen Brandt, international professional genealogist and consultant.
One of the many things I love about attending genealogy conferences is meeting readers of this blog. So I always post here before the conference, hoping to find folks to meet up with. So if you’re planning to attend this conference please let me know in the comments. I’ll email you and we can make plans to meet!
