Colorado Springs Family History Expo Just Around the Corner

I'm so pleased that Holly Hansen, President of Family History Expos, Inc. has asked me to help promote, publicize and disseminate information about the Family History Expo in Colorado Springs June 1 & 2 by serving as a "Blogger of Honor". I'll be in the good company of these other "Bloggers of Honor": Arlene Eakle, Ph. D. who writes 'Genealogy Evidence', James Tanner, author of 'Genealogy's Star',  Schelly Talalay Dardashti, author of  'Tracing the Tribe', Ruby Coleman of 'The You Go Genealogy Girls', and Jolene Aitchison, author of 'Genealogy Your Way'.

Last Fall my husband gifted me with a new netbook, so I can easily take notes during the conference sessions and carry it around with me in the Exhibit Hall with little effort. When I attended RootsTech in Salt Lake City last February, I actually had fun taking notes on my netbook using the Evernote app. When I returned home, I printed my notes and shared them with other Consultants in our local Family History Center. 
Yesterday I printed the handouts that Holly provides for us at and have prepared my own syllabus that I can preview and study prior to the conference. I know that I'll get a CD of the Expo syllabus at the Expo, but I like to have my classes chosen and my schedule well in mind before I attend the Expo. I like to have a hard copy of the class outline so I can follow the Presenter, then I also know what I don't need to type into my own notes.  
I'd love to meet you at the Crowne Plaza in Colorado Springs in just 3 weeks. You can still register and read all about the Expo here.

Sure wish I could be joining you! I've lately been involved in a research project centered in the Springs, and getting there would sure supercharge that search! But maybe next this an annual event?
