On The Road Again

Isn't that a song or jingle about being on the road again? After a wonderful and productive trip to Salt Lake City, I was home a few days and received word that my sister had passed away. It was not unexpected, but still the finality of it hurts. I just returned home today from her funeral. The luggage came in, some was put away and some left out to repack in a few days.

Another exciting trip is on the agenda. This time it is to Loveland, CO to the Family History Expo. The Expo begins Friday, June 25th at the Embassy Suites Loveland Hotel & Conference Center. The two day conference will feature 89 presentations by excellent speakers and 28 vendors displaying their products. There are classes for beginners, experienced and advanced researchers, along with time to Ask-The-Pros.

There are eight honor bloggers for this Expo and I will be representing the You Go Genealogy Girls. YGGG#2 (Cheri) cannot attend the conference, but will be going to the Midwest Family History Expo in Kansas City, MO, Friday July 30th and Saturday July 31st.

For more information on the 2nd Annual Colorado Family History Expo 2010, check out their web page. There you will find a complete listing of speakers, topics plus information on the cost of the conference. You can register online from their web page.

Other Expos for 2010 besides Loveland and Kansas City, include Pleasanton, CA October 8-9; Salt Lake City Family History Library Research Retreat Oct 25-30 and Atlanta, GA November 12-13.

I am on a countdown for the Expo in Loveland. So much to do and so little time. Ancestors need my attention also. And I need some sleep!
