Report from Southern California Genealogical Society Conference

Well we made it to sunny California.
We are listening to the Oompah music this evening in the vendors hall. We are glad to see lots of people here this time. It looks like the conference is growing. A good thing.

Karen Calisterio has been telling us about the new website they launched last weekend. She is a wiz with graphics. It looks great. They do all sorts of things, well worth a look. I love their scrapbook kits. I also have one of their charm bracelets with a picture of my kids on it. It is one of my favorites.

The SCGS group has a huge section of the vendors area and are doing book sales and also have a "tech zone" where users can come and get research help. Jay Holladay did a great job of setting up the databases that are available at the library for use here at the conference. They have done a great job of putting on a festive atmosphere. Lots of drawings. Lots of fun.

Time flies when we are having fun. About ready to close up. I'll let you know how the rest of the conference goes.
