NGS 2012 Conference Cincinnati Ohio Day 3

It had to be an early start on day three of the conference because at 8 am Elizabeth Shown Mills was presenting “Okay, I ‘Got the Neighbours’: Now What Do I Do with Them.” I knew this was going to be a crowded lecture so I got there extra early.

This was a good thing because it gave me the opportunity to chat with the people around me. Right next to me was Tonya Hull and what a pleasant surprise to learn that she reads my blog. Thank you for the support Tonya I appreciate it. It was nice to meet you at the conference. Behind me was my friend Lisa Alzo.

Elizabeth’s lecture was fantastic. I always learn something new from her lectures.

The next lecture was “Cloud Storage and Backup,” still trying to learn as much as I can on the subject.

The last lecture of the day was sponsored by the Association of Professional Genealogists called “When Do I Link in, Tweet, Facebook, or Flickr? Social Media for the Professional Genealogist.” This is a balance I am working on. If one more new social media program comes out I will have no time for anything else.

The day ended with a dinner for those of us connected to the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. Louise St. Denis hosted the meal at the Rockbottom Micro Brewery Pub in Fountain Square. Lisa Alzo and Gena Philibert-Ortega were among those in attendance.

The Cincinnati Reds were playing a home game so we were lucky to get a table so quickly for a large group. The meal was wonderful. I had a mango ice tea which was just mango and ice tea nothing else added. It was delicious. My main meal was a hazelnut crusted chicken breast with a dried cherry sauce and white cheddar mash potatoes. The whole meal was fantastic.

After dinner we wandered to the other side of the square and went to Graeter’s Ice Cream. I had a black raspberry chip ice cream – Yum!
