Things are busy here tonight! I'm busy packing for my next speaking engagement which is at the California Family History Expo in Pleasanton, California! I've got the Mardi Gras beads (blue and gold - blue for the Pacific Ocean and gold for the Gold Rush), ribbons for The Great Ribbon War, buttons, business cards and all the other conference bling I carry with me. And I actually have a new toy which I can't wait to show off - let's just say it is bright and shiny like my personality!
I am flying into San Jose International Airport where, if things are on schedule, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist and Amy Coffin of We Tree will be waiting. We'll get our "wagon" and then drive up the backside of the San Francisco Bay, check in at our hotel and get settled. Click here to see which other genealogy bloggers will be at the Expo this weekend! I expect there will be lots of catching up to do, lots of fun, lots of dinners and lunches together too.
Even if you haven't registered yet, you can still show up starting at 7:00 am on Friday, October 8th at the Alameda Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California and join us! I will be sitting with all the other bloggers at the Beacon of Bloggers table. Please stop by and say hello!
