Today I went to the Santa Clara County Historical and Genealogicial Society 2011 seminar. This seminar was all day and free. Yep. Free. Cost zero dollars and zero cents. The kids and I spent the night at my mom's in Sunnyvale so that I would be closer to the venue in the morning. It was well-orchestrated and really nicely put together. I was extremely impressed.
I also did the silent auction and won a special 2-year membership to the Silicon Valley Computer Genealogy Group, along with a ton of other cool things that I haven't even looked through yet.
The classes were great: Land records, Court records, Interviewing, and Spreadsheets. Something for everyone.
I'm a very happy genealogy camper right now.
Plus my Flip-Pal is here and I scanned a bunch of Mom's pictures...
