KANSAS ... I'm here

After a very enjoyable trip across Nebraska and south into Kansas, the Family History Expo gals and one guy arrived at Overland Park, KS close to midnight last night.  Opening the vehicle door we were greeted by a heat wave and wind.  What did we excpect?  It's July.  As we drove through Seneca, KS I noticed a bank temperature sign reporting a whopping 104 degrees. 

For the most part we will be inside for a while.  No worry about what's going on outside.  Today is set up day to make sure everybody enjoys their Family History Expo experience.  Tomorrow morning we will early greeted by the words and wisdom of Lisa Louise Cooke.  She is that amazing gal who hosts Genealogy Gems podcast and has all those great Google tools for genealogists.  Then everybody scatters to their appropriate classes.  The chatter begins as people exchange ideas as well as surnames.  Never know where you will find a relative or at least somebody who will share their genealogical frustrations as well as success stories. 

Stay tuned with the You Go Genealogy Girls and I'll keep you posted on the latest and best of the Expo.  As a lecturer I do know genealogists like to learn.  If they come away with just one idea from my classes, I have succeeded.
