2016 Jamboree Notes

I haven't blogged for months. But that's "neither here or there" as I've been told in the past. It just is!

This Jamboree was different but just as great. We missed some people who had other commitments,  but have a lot of others who have provided us with so many great ideas for researching. Thank you, Speakers, for all of your time and effort.

I want to mention that I spoke with two ladies from the Spokane area, Mary and Nancy. They are both thinking about blogging. I gave them some basic information and encouraged them to look into Geneabloggers, of course. They are first-time Jamboree attendees and are having such a good time that they already are planning on coming back next year. I'm hoping to see them again tomorrow and see how their evening looking into blogging platforms, etc. went.

And, oh, do I have a lot of work to do. Even though this was my 8th (I think) Jamboree, I still learned some techniques that I really MUST use because I'm sure that they will help me improve my research skills and find information about some of those elusive ancestors.
