I will be traveling for the next few days so I'll issue the same disclaimer that I write every time I travel: I do expect to be traveling with an assortment of laptop computers, a wireless "air card" and wi-fi equipment, modem, and other gadgets. I expect to post articles to this newsletter more or less daily during my travels. However, don't be surprised if I miss a day or two because of hardware malfunctions or travel constraints.
This should be one of my easier trips: I'll jump in the car and drive to Manchester, New Hampshire. That's only a bit more than a one hour drive for me. In fact, when I travel to distant genealogy conferences, I often fly out of the Manchester airport. This time, however, instead of going to the airport, I'll go downtown and check into the Radisson Hotel.
I'll attend the New England Regional Genealogical Conference, otherwise known as NERGC. This conference is sponsored by a consortium of more than twenty genealogy societies. I expect that it will be the largest genealogy conference of the year to be held in the northeastern United States.
You can read my earlier article about NERGC at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2009/04/this-week-at-nergc.html. You can find still more information at the NERGC web site at http://www.nergc.org.
If you can be in Manchester this week, you might like to stop in at the Expo Center of New Hampshire. If you cannot be there, you can read about it in this newsletter. If the computers and the Internet connections operate properly, I'll be writing daily about the events at the conference. The Roots Television folks will be there as well so I wouldn't be surprised to see some NERGC videos appear at http://www.RootsTelevision.com in the weeks following the conference.
