I am devoting this summer of 2011 to genealogy. That includes time spent with family as they are part of the genealogy. It will be fun!
In a few days I will be leaving for northwest Nebraska for a family get-together. From there my sister-in-law (we are the You Go Genealogy Girls) and I will leave for Salt Lake City. This is our third annual trip to spend time in the Family History Library. We are driving and will be there for two weeks.
On Thursday, June 16th, the Family History Expo will be here in North Platte, Nebraska. I will be one of the speakers. The next day we leave for Rapid City, South Dakota for a one-day Expo. The other circuit lecturers are going on to Sheridan, Wyoming from there. I will be coming back to North Platte, doing laundry and repacking to join them in Loveland, Colorado for the Colorado Family History Expo.
That takes care of June. On July 6th I will arrive in Alliance, Nebraska for the Civil War Conference on July 8th and 9th at the Knight Museum and Sandhills Center. I will be presenting three lectures.
The fun doesn't end there, so stay tuned to the Family History Expo web site for more details of what is happening in July and August. Maybe an Expo will be coming to your area. You won't want to miss the experience of attending one of them.
In August I will presenting a noon lecture about my new book, Genealogical Research in Nebraska. This will be at the North Platte Public Library on August 18th. Packed up and ready from there, I will journey to northwest Nebraska for my 50th Class Reunion. Yes, I admitted the years.
My wish list includes a trip to the east coast in September to visit family in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Of course, I have already started on to-do lists for genealogical research.
While I'm in Salt Lake City, read about the trip and what I'm discovering at the You Go Genealogy Girls blog. If you are near one of my summer lecturing events, be sure to introduce yourself and say "hey."
