On the Road Again, This Time to London

This is a quick notice to let you know there may not be as many articles as normal posted in this newsletter in the next week or ten days. I will be in London, England attending the RootsTech London genealogy conference on October 24 through 26. See https://www.rootstech.org/london for details about the conference. I will then add a few days “personal time” both before and after the conference so that I can be a tourist in the country and travel around a bit.

I have been to England many times and every time I leave I always have ideas on what I want to do on my “next visit.” In the next ten days, I plan to follow up on some of those ideas.

RootsTech Exhibits Hall

I also hope to write about the conference events that I see at RootsTech London and I also suspect I will also post a number of photographs of the conference in this newsletter while I am there.

On the Road Again, This Time to Amsterdam

This is a quick notice to let you know there may not be as many articles as normal posted in this newsletter in the next few days. I will be in Amsterdam, Netherlands from Wednesday, September 4 through Wednesday of the following week, September 11. I will be attending the MyHeritage LIVE 2019 genealogy conference on September 6 through 8. See https://live2019.myheritage.com for details about the conference. I will then add a few days “personal time” after the conference so that I can be a tourist in the country and travel around a bit.

I have been to the Netherlands before and left with some ideas on what I wanted to do “next time.” I want to follow up on those ideas. My last visit was delightful but occurred some years ago. I now plan to see what has changed and to visit a few places that I missed on my last trip.

I hope to write about the conference events that I see at MyHeritage LIVE 2019. I suspect I will also post a number of photographs of the conference in this newsletter while I am there.

This is a quick notice to let you know there may not be as many articles as normal posted in this newsletter in the next few days. If you have been reading this newsletter for some time, you already know that I often travel to genealogy conferences.

I will be in Washington, DC this week on Wednesday through Saturday. I will be attending the annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. For details about this conference, see https://www.fgsconference.org.

I hope to write about the conference events that I see and attend. I suspect I will also post a number of photographs of the conference in this newsletter while I am there. Who knows? I may even get to attend a few presentations!

I should be back home next week for a few days before heading out on my next trip.

Stay tuned!
