Conferences are so rewarding. I am in Salt Lake City this week attending the annual Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy. I am looking forward to a week of being educated from several experts about German Research. I am attending the Advanced German Research track with a couple of friends I have met through the Germanic Genealogy Society.
- I enjoy the classes and the suggestions I hear that I can implement in my own research and as I help research for others. I often write in the margins of my notes the surnames of families that a particular tip/website/resource could be useful.
- I enjoy the camaraderie between researchers as we support each other in our research goals.
- I really enjoy having conferences in Salt Lake City because it means research time in the Family History Library.
It is going to be a great week.
