We’re packing for the Loveland, Colorado Family History Expo this Friday and Saturday. We love appearing at conferences like Family History Expos. The people who attend are always fun to meet and anxious to learn. We’ll be teaching three classes at Loveland:
- · A Good Read: Make Family History Books Exciting in River bend B, Friday, 3:00
- · Family History Books: Editing, Design and Publishing in River bend B, Friday, 4:30
- · How to Plan and Organize a Family History Book in the Exhibits Hall Saturday , 2:30
If we’re at the expo, we hope you’ll join us for a class or two. If they won’t fit into your schedule, stop by Booth 220 with your questions about creating a family history book or memoir.
One of the things that makes expos fun is learning from other people. At the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree a couple of weeks ago Kendra Paffrath gave us a great tip. Kendra and I share a common problem at events like these. We look at the many books on sale, spot a good one and buy it, only to get home and find we already own a copy. Kendra said, she now takes pictures of her book shelves using the camera on her cell phone before going to the conference. When she looks at the books on a vendor’s shelves, she can use the photos to see if they are already on her shelves. I am looking forward to giving it a try.
