Tika & The Symposium
I attended our second annual FamilySearch Symposium! It was held in our LDS meetinghouse; we had 280 folks attending; we provided a free lunch AND homemade bread, butter and jam for a morning snack.
The program for the day was a roster of five "tracks", each one having four classes so there was most certainly something for everybody. If you'd like to know more about our Symposium, click to www.rememberinggenerations.com .
The teaching point of today's bit is this: If you are at all able to attend, then go and attend any and all family history or genealogy meetings, workshops, seminars and symposiums. They are planned to teach YOU and me and anybody interested how to do their genealogy, how to understand the records and (most importantly) how to use the records you find.
You just cheat yourself if you stay home and do genealogy in a closet.
The homemade bread was worth the effort! (I did bring home a bit for Tika. She's no dummie; she loves homemade bread.)
