The first day of the National Genealogical Society Conference was a great success. The presentations were top notch. Our Keynote Speaker Dr. Connie Lester brought us tremendous insights into "Ordinary" People Extraordinary Lives." We were encouraged to become partners into her exciting project. Each presentation during the day enlightened us on how to become better genealogical researchers. The vendor hall was crowded with attendees, searching for knowledge and, in some cases, chances to win prizes. Looking forward to another great day of learning tomorrow.
