October 2018 has been the busiest Family History Month yet! I was able to giveaway a DNA kit, and attend the Arkansas Genealogical Society Fall Seminar and meet speaker, CeCe Moore of DNA Detectives! I have also just about completed a lineage application for the Mayflower Society and two other DAR supplement applications. Throw in some great pumpkin patch outings and it has been a wonderful month!
To wrap up Family History Month 2018, I am giving away a 4-day pass to RootsTech 2019!
Why should you go to RootsTech? There are SO many reasons! To be inspired, like I was by all of the keynote session speakers. To learn, learn, learn! There are SO many great presenters and topics, and for various skill levels! Finally, the networking and socializing with some AWESOME people is the icing on the cake.
Last year was my first time to attend RootsTech, and the personal connections I made with other genealogists was possibly the highlight of the trip. I made new friends, and connected with even a very distant cousin! The NextGen Genealogy Network had a fun meet-up, and MyHeritage hosted a festive Roaring 20’s party. I made some life long friends and colleagues, and look forward to seeing these fabulous genealogists and making new connections in 2019.
Here’s the highlight reel from 2018! Look at these amazing people!
The #RootsTech 2019 giveaway includes:
