The St. George sneak peek went great.

We had a great time showing Family ChArtist to the St. George Expo attendees. The response was great and program worked well. Everyone can't wait for next Monday.
The crowd was wonderful. As always. It is always so fun to get to see all the good friends that we have at these conferences.
We had very little down time. Kim and I did get one second to talk to each other.
We pressed our son into helping with printing since we were so busy. It was exciting to have his help. And he was excited to be able to help. Let's hope it stays that way.

Somehow Geoff Rasmussen ( and Paula Vilburn ( and I all lost our voices. It couldn't be germs shared between Arizona, Hawaii and Utah. I guess it was all the talking.
We used Mark Tucker's video on a loop, but we're still working out the bugs of having a booth with the new product. We were able to show people one at a time at the computers, but I'm afraid we missed alot of people that way.

We're going to get a bigger screen to show the video and do demonstrations for more people at a time. We'll probably follow RootsMagic, ( who were able to teach lots of people at their booth with their new screens. I'm not getting to meet as many new bloggers/tweeters as I used to, most of them are all good friends now. But I did get to meet Rebecca Trujillo Batty ( for the first time. What a sweetheart she is. I'm so glad to have her as a new friend. And Holly does such a great job as usual. It is so fun to watch all the great giveaways at the end of the conference. There is so much to win at her events. Computers, trips to the SL library, Software, and of course Generation Maps gift certificates. Kudos to Holly not only helping people to do genealogy better, but also for making it such fun. Hope to see you at one of these great events soon. It is always such a party.

It was great to see you again and get a tour of your new Family ChArtist -- fabulous program with so many features.

I missed meeting Rebecca, but glad you got to say hello. She won 2 free tickets to FH Expo from The Family Curator!
