Thanks to the planners, sponsors, volunteers and everyone else who made the 2012 NGS Conference in Cincinnati successful.
I attended 2 sessions Saturday morning before we left at noon:
- “Research Reports for Ourselves” by Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FMGS, FUGA.
- “Information Overload? Effective Project Planning, Research, Data Management & Analysis” by Elizabeth Shown Mills, CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS.
Yes, by Saturday I was on Information Overload! Both of the above lectures were excellent. I just need to put what I have learned to use in my research and report writing.
Before I left the conference I purchased a DNA kit from Family Tree DNA. My goal is to see if my paternal side descends from the Mayflower Brewsters. Either way, perhaps this will help us discover who Jackson Brewster’s parents were. The DNA sample needs to come from a male so I will be visiting one of my uncles soon. I’ll let you know how the test turns out.
