Conferences, Conferences, and more Conferences!

Happy New Year!
I'm attending the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) this week practicing on my analytical skills in Angela McGhie's Advanced Evidence Analytical Practicum. The first case was a challenge--I had to 5 female relatives of an unnamed woman. My only clue was her married name and a location. I found three of the women, then I ran short on time to find the others. Not an easy assignment to do in just a few hours.
Before I start the next assignment, I wanted to mention that there are a few other conferences coming up this spring.
RootsTech and FGS are side-by-side in February in Salt Lake City. Former First Lady Laura Bush will be a keynote speaker. Here's the blog:
Jamboree (hosted by the So. California Genealogy Society) will take place the first weekend in June in Burbank, CA. Here's the blog:
NGS will be in St. Louis, Missouri the 2nd weekend of May. Here's the blog:
I'll definitely be at Jamboree in June, but I won't make it to the others. And if you can't either, here's the good news--these conferences will air several sessions online so we can watch them in the comfort of our homes with our computers. So, check their websites for details.
