Expo - Mesa & Family History Society of Arizona

I had a great day at the Family History Expo in Mesa.  I spent the day in the book for the Family History Society of Arizona.  I met so many great people.  And some came by more than once just to "chat."  I gave some of them names of free web sites (like familysearch, rootsweb and heritage quest).  I waved at many others that I knew.  I "met" Byron again.  We talked last year; he joined FHSA; I saw him at FGS in Springfield in August 2011; and now he's presenting.  That was really great to hear.

I was going to have dinner during one of the late afternoon sessions.  I ended up not eating until almost 7 because 1-3 people were at the booth continuously from about 4:30 to 6:40.  Isn't that great?  And I certainly wasn't going to get up and say, "Excuse me, but I want to eat instead of talking with you about genealogy and FHSA." 

Mary Lu came by between sessions a couple of times and really helped out, answering questions and visiting with some researchers while I visited with others.  Thank you Mary Lu.

Well, I'm looking forward to tomorrow.  I know it will be great.
