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. You can read more about the presentations at http://newyorkfamilyhistory.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=235
(If you click on the small thumbnail image, you can view a larger picture that shows the lions.)
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.
