An Ancestry Adventure This Week

Okay, I  can let you all in on a secret - well not really a secret, but an event that I am attending later this week in Salt Lake City.

It is's annual Blogger's Day.

So what is this all about?  Well I first heard about Blogger's Day back in January 2009 through a series of posts at Randy Seaver's Genea-Musings (see Randy's post on his best 2009 genealogy moment to learn more about last year's event) and I found every aspect of his visit interesting.

Late in 2009, I received an invitation from to attend the 2010 Blogger's Day planned for Friday, January 8, 2010 in Provo, Utah where Ancestry's headquarters are located.  Not only was I ecstatic at the chance to meet with Ancestry staff and hopefully discuss issues in the genealogy industry, I was grateful for such an opportunity.

I will be reporting on my trip beginning Thursday, January 7, 2010 and will fill my readers in on my experiences and what I learn during the tours and meetings.

Stay tuned!

I know I've congratulated you privately, but I want to say it here as well in case Ancestry pays a visit to this blog post:

They're fortunate to have you!

Enjoy your trip and report back.

OMG, this is so cool! I can't wait to see the updates. I may miss some in real time because we plan to go to Idaho on Friday, but that's what archives are for, right? You deserve this Thomas. You are the best!
