Here is my plan for Sunday:
- 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. Gena Philibert-Ortega will be presenting, “Of Elephants, Gold, and Dashed Dreams: Researching the California Gold Rush”. Breakfast will also be served (can you say LOTS of coffee and extra concealer to hide the under-eye bags?) and the recipient of the Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Student Genealogy Grant will be announced.
- 8:30 – 9:30 p.m: I will probably want a break, so I will probably just make my last round in the exhibit hall and get some last minute socializing in with friends. And I’ll be exhausted. If I am awake and checked out of the hotel, I might head over to Josh Taylor’s talk, “Resources of the DAR: Beyond Revolutionary War Soldiers”
- 10:00 – 11:30 p.m: I’ll be on a panel with Janet Hovorka, Crista Cowan, A.C. Ivory, Michael Melendez, and Josh Taylor. We’ll be speaking about “Rebranding Genealogy and Engaging the Next Generation”.
- Then it will be saying goodbyes to everyone as people leave the conference at different times for flights home. The conference is officially over at about 4 p.m., when the grand finale drawing is done. I keep promising myself that I will be the winner this year of the 7 Day Stay at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, just steps from the Family History Library. You have to play to win!
I am so looking forward to this conference! I can’t wait to see everyone again – it is truly like a family reunion for me. If you will be there, come say hi!
