Readers of this newsletter traditionally gather for dinner on Saturday evening after the close of a genealogy conference. This year's FGS conference in Austin was no exception: 27 adventurous genealogists set out Saturday evening on a march from the convention center to Manuel's Mexican Restaurant. The boisterous group then consumed an amazing quantity of nachos, enchiladas, chile rellenos and various liquid refreshments. We did try to elevate the noise level in the restaurant as well, although I think we failed. It was already a noisy place before we walked in!
