I had a wonderful time at FGS/Rootstech. I am hoping to get to work tracking my ancestors with my new ideas as soon as possible. I just need to get caught up in the office and with everything that has been neglected while I was away.
I have already started to work on improving our society with classes I attended FGS Society day and the Innovator Summit. Lisa Louise Cooke did a wonderful class on marketing and it applies across the board with both the society and my personal business.

I must admit to being partial to Lisa. I worked for her in the expo hall (and previously), she is one of the best bosses a person could work for. She also allowed me to slip away to wander the exhibit hall and to attend some classes. She didn’t even mind when I was late getting to work on Saturday (the photo op with Donny Osmond was just too great to resist).
I can’t wait to attend FGS 2016 in Springfield. Let this serve as a warning to my Illinois relatives – I will be hitting the state the last week of August and staying through the first week of September. I will also be seeking you all out to spend some quality time with you while I troll for family records.
