Thursday was a long day filled with lots of learning and fun.
The first lecture was Maximizing Your Use of Evidence with Thomas W. Jones. I had seen this one before but I like to see this type of lecture several times as I can pick up something new each time. Then it was Finding Ancestors through Their Lawsuits in English Chancery Court with Ronald Ames Hill PhD, CG, FASG. I have some English ancestors and wanted to learn more about these records.
The next lecture I went to was Organizing Your Family History Electronically with Ann Carter Fleming CG, CGL, FNGS. I am at that awkward in between stage of paper and digital. I was looking for tips to start my digital organizing.
I didn’t go to the final lecture of the day because my friend and I went to Ceasar’s Palace and had an early dinner at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill where the food was wonderful. Unfortunately no room for dessert.
Then we went and saw Elton John in concert. It was the best concert I have ever attended. The music brought back memories. He opened with The Bitch is Back and ended with Crocodile Rock which had the joint jumping. His encore was The Circle of Life. The two hour concert was filled with music, stories, chat and just plain fun.
