Count Down To the Atlanta Family History Expo - Getting Ready

The Atlanta Family History Expo is less than a week away, which also means I'm a week away from my first research trip. I've decided in this week leading up to both event(s) that I would tell something that I've done each day to prepare for both.

First, even though I did this several weeks ago, I finally created some genealogy business cards.



(In real life, it's not crooked. I just can't seem to scan anything where it comes out straight.)

Today, I went through the schedule of events, again, and made decisions on which workshops / lectures I would really like to attend. I quickly realized that many of the sessions I am interested in attending were being given at the same time. So, I did what any resourceful genealogist would do, I registered my mother for the Family History Expo, also. Although my mother is traveling with me, she hadn't really planned to attend the FHE, but I need her to go to some of the sessions, so she'll be attending and taking notes, too.

  1. Thank you. I've also been trying to round up someone to go with me to the Expo so they could attend sessions that overlap with other sessions I want to attend. Now that I know I'm not the only one, I don't feel so guilty.

    I love the idea of genealogy business cards. I've been trying to come up with an idea to let people know about my blog and the names I'm researching. If I can find my cardstock (I'm a bit behind on filing my genealogy papers), I might try printing up some myself.
