The week of the National Genealogical Society Conference flew by in a flash. A whirlwind of speakers, networking, meeting new people from all over the country. I came away with more knowledge and ideas than I ever dreamed.
All these people (and more) imparted such a sense of research and scholarship and--the best part--joy in the researching of clues about our ancestors and how they lived and died. When I started researching my family tree, an entire new world and passion opened up for me. After this conference, my world, appreciation, and research potential grew immensely. I took so much away from this conference, and my hope is to continue to discover new facts with the integrity I saw in those around me this week.
So thank you, National Genealogical Society. I appreciated this week so much.
