Well this was the last day of the conference. It is always a mixed blessing. You are tired and want to go home but you have had such a good time you don’t want it to end.
The main lecture I wanted to attend today was Elizabeth Shown Mill’s “Information Overload? Effective Project Planning, Research, Data Management & Analysis.” We were in the lecture room half an hour before it started and we could only get seats up near the front. It was the largest room and it was packed.
It was worth it though. Elizabeth never disappoints. I walked out of that lecture having learned something new. Every time I attend a conference my main goal is to learn something new every day.
The marketplace closed at 2 pm and we were packed up and on the road by 3:30 pm. We spent the night in Windsor Ontario and then drove the rest of the way home on Sunday.
Whenever I get home from a conference I am exhausted, on information overload and have a long list of things that I want to learn more about or implement. The last few weeks have been very busy for me so that list is still waiting. It will have to wait a little more as I am attending the Ontario Genealogical Society conference in Kingston this weekend.
If you ever get the chance to attend a genealogical conference, be it a regional conference or a national one, please take the chance. You won’t regret it. Just remember the comfortable shoes!
