The 2011 annual conference of the (U.S.) National Genealogical Society continued today in Charleston, South Carolina. With the exception of the opening ceremonies, today was much like yesterday: lots of presentations offered by the leading genealogy lecturers of today, sponsored luncheons, and a lot of things to see in the exhibits hall.

The RootsMagic booth also seemed crowded much of the time.
FamilySearch has a redesigned booth, again with crowds.
A popular book by Paul K. Graham.
Do you think genealogists are interested in Google searches? Many copies of these two books have been sold at the conference.
The folks who sell the Flip-Pal battery-powered scanners obviously want the Mac users to know that Mac software is now included.
Paul Larsen is the author and publisher of "Crash Course in Family History," an excellent tutorial for genealogy newcomers and long-time experts alike.
Ed Zapletal of Moorshead Magazines, publisher of Family Chronicle magazine, Internet Genealogy magazine, and other publications.
Archives.com has a major presence at the conference.
