I attended a day-long genealogy seminar held at the New York Public Library yesterday. That's the place on Fifth Avenue with the lions standing guard out front. Sponsored by the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society, Ruth A. Carr, David Kleiman, and I offered five different presentations about various technology-oriented topics.

The audience seemed to enjoy the day and I must say that I was thrilled to be giving talks in such a historic place. I would like to say "Thank you" to Lauren A. Maehrlein, Director of Education at the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society, and to McKelden Smith, President of the the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society, for the invitation to speak at such a great event.
The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society holds many seminars throughout the year on a wide range of genealogy-related topics. If you can be in New York City, you will want to attend some of these events. The next event will feature Marie Varrelman Melchiori speaking on "Beyond the Draft: World War I Records in the National Archives" on October 18.
