I must say that I had fun giving presentations at the Central Florida Genealogical Society in Altamonte Springs yesterday. I thought it was especially nice of the organizers to hold the event only about ten miles from where my motor home is parked! No, I didn't plan that. It just worked out that way.
About 60 or 70 people sat patiently all day long as I gave four presentations. They also asked some tough questions! I take that as a good sign that they were paying attention. I also received an email note this morning from a lady who listened to my talk yesterday about Google for Genealogists, then went home and found an online copy of a family history book that she had been looking for since 1989! It listed her ancestors and provided several new (to her) generations. I'm delighted when these things work.
The Central Florida Genealogical Society is a very active organization with several hundred members and lots of activities going on. I only got a short glimpse yesterday of all the society's efforts and was impressed.
If you live anywhere in the greater Orlando area, you might want to learn more about the Central Florida Genealogical Society and even consider joining this active group. You can read more on the society's web page at http://www.cfgs.org/.
They also know of a rather good Chinese restaurant just up the street from where we met! I don't think that is listed on the society's web site, however.
