my first genealogy conference: NGS 2013 here I come!
First time in Vegas, first genealogy event.
I'm going for two reasons: to get clues to our family's histories, and to learn about the world of family history. I've always been a participant journalist and this is the kind of opportunity to walk amongst passionate, interested people -- my favorite kind!
Doing this research on our families introduced me to a universe of thinking and science and ethical issues I'd not entertained. I'm hooked.
I look forward to meeting folks at NGS. I only know one other person who'll be there. If you're going, and have advice for a newbie, please let me know!
