FGS 2011 - Blogging

I am learning a little more about the blogging community.  While there are "Official Bloggers" for FGS, it seems that all bloggers are encouraged to participate in activities.  In fact, there was a list of all geneabloggers who are attending the FGS conference in the FGS Conference Blog a couple of days ago.  Can you imagine?  Almost 50 bloggers were listed!  I'm looking forward to putting names and faces with blogs.  (Those little photos don't always work for me.) 

As a new blogger (I started my blog 2 months ago, after SCGS Jamboree), I am beginning to understand how bloggers and conference organizers work together.  While I don't think I'll be blogging during sessions, it's nice to know that there will be a place to charge computer batteries (if necessary) and meet with other bloggers.  Thank you, conference planners.  I'll see all of you next week.

Society Saturday - FHSA Arizona, Phoenix area

I am currently the President of The Family History Society of Arizona (FHSA) which has 7 chapters throughout the Phoenix area.  Each chapter has a monthly meeting with a speaker or two.  Some chapters meet during the day; others at night.  Please check out our web site: and look under chapters to find out the specific dates, times and programs for each chapter.  We love to have visitors and quite a few of our 300+ members are also "winter visitors" or part time residents of Arizona.  Please join us.
