I'm so anxiously looking forward to attending my FIRST Family History Expo in Loveland, CO on Friday and Saturday, June 12 and 13. Holly Hansen, President of Family History Expos, is hosting this event at the Embassy Suites and has invited me, among other attendees, to be a "Blogger of Honor". We'll be posting stories each day about the classes, the presenters, and all the related activity. My plan is to "Tweet" my impressions during the day on Twitter (follow me: @beckyjamison) and blog here on 'Grace and Glory' about the events of the day as evening rolls around.
The other Bloggers of Honor are Holly Hansen, Bernie Gracy, Arlene Eakle, Janet Hovorka, Dean Richardson, and Sarah Strong. I've printed the syllabus and have pored over it to become familiar with the many interesting classes that will be presented. I nearly have my final selections made but wish I could clone myself and attend two at the same time, in some cases. I'm a very happy user of RootsMagic4 and am really looking forward to meeting Bruce Buzbee and learning more of the ins and outs of his excellent genealogy software program. I'm anxious to meet Janet Hovorka of Generation Maps and learn more about how I can benefit from her expertise. And what a thrill it will be to meet Arlene Eakle in person. I hope my camera batteries don't let me down.
I'm so happy that I've recruited 3 of my friends here in Canon City to accompany me to the Expo. We are really looking forward to having fun and learning from the experts! Check back here on the 12th and 13th of June and for the entire week of June 14th to read about my experiences. As an "expo newbie" I'm sure I'll have plenty to share with you--if I'm not too "star-struck"! Thank you, Holly, for giving me this awesome opportunity!
