The date of the 2014 FGS Conference in San Antonio comes closer. Less than 3 months.
I know this due to the Ambassadors listed upon the conference website, containing big name genealogists and researchers with an amassed experience that I cannot tabulate without gaining a migraine and knots in my long rabbit ears!
Now, I do not know about you, but when I am out-and-about on a limited time-frame, I always find that I have too much to do and not enough time to do it in! I also discover (usually on my homebound trip) that I missed my chance for a photo with her (again!), or a coffee chat with him, etc, etc, etc.
So, to remedy those missed moments, I put together a little card — much like a Bingo card, but each square signifies something I need to do, or someone I need to see, before heading home. Like this:
(Perhaps the genealogical societies in the Exhibitors Hall might have some ideas to fill a few squares of similar cards?) (O.o)?
The majority of squares in this example are occupied with the names of my fellow FGS Conference Ambassadors. They and many of my friends are attending, this year, and I hope that you have the opportunity to say Hello to each of them, especially if you cannot listen to their presentations.
But if you hear any fan-girl squeals in your travels, run far, far away! Nostalgia is near and closing in on you!
And you REALLY don’t want that!
