My first morning at FHExpo, Loveland

My husband and I have been having so much fun at this beautiful Embassy Suites in Loveland, CO. We arrived last night in time to review our syllabus and choose our classes. Larry’s pictured below with our friends Ken and Lureen Orchard, who serve as the Directors of our Canon City, CO Family History Center.

DSCN0011 I was ready for the day at 6:30 this morning, even though registration didn’t open until 7 am.

DSCN0015 I ventured past the registration for Bloggers and nearly missed my wonderful gift bag! Holly Hansen, President of FH Expo generously guided me to the table and presented me with my goodie bag. Thank you, Holly!

In his Keynote Address, Beau Sharbrough had everyone in stitches as he talked about the frustrations genealogists experience when we can’t get others to share our enthusiasm.  I’ll post more of the content of his talklater, but I want to share this quote that I made note of: “There never was a descendant who wasn’t begat.” Profound.

DSCN0018Larry and I attended two classes that I’ll comment on when I sit down to blog again. I have 10 minutes to close this and get to my class on RootsMagic. See ya next time.
