Got up early and unhooked from the services, drove to the conference center early to find a level parking spot as the refrigerator got pretty warm the day before, then we had breakfast in the parking lot as it filled up. Watching all the volunteers was great also. Our cousin Ardys Vaughn parked right next to us and the Historical Records Project van was on the other side of us.
Josh Taylor was the first speaker on
Saturday, his topic was Evaluating and Documenting Online Sources. His
message was that URL's change so document the web site owner as this
will not change.
Before lunch was a group picture of all the attendees in the hall by the auditorium.
lunch was Josh again, his topic now was The Web, the World and YOU
(Advanced Internet Researching), where he told about researching with
his grandmother and finally finding his immigrant ancestor.
next class was by Margie Beldin in the AHS Commons titled Anything but
Genealogy: Non Genealogy Software for the Genealogist, and Margie is a
wiz at showing these programs and how they can make your life easier.
the conference center emptied out very fast and we headed down the hill
to a service station that had a big sign Propane as one of our tanks
was empty, but got there too late for them to fill propane tanks, so off
on I-5 on our way to Ocean Shores. Saw the Space Needle on our way
days 1 and 2 here
