Live excitement in Boston

Hello from the conference host hotel, the Boston Sheraton. This afternoon at 3:00 folks began to arrive to pick up their registration materials, the 4 volume syllabus, and a very nice tote bag. It was an explosion of genealogists as suddenly it seemed like everyone arrived at once. But this was a nice explosion -- the kind that made the conference planners smile. The volunteers working at registration did a phenomenal job.

It was also exciting to see a lot of folks who showed up to register for the entire conference. Today's Boston Globe had a long article about a special release of detailed Irish maps. It even ranked as one of the most e-mailed articles as readers shared the news with others. Stop by the Ordinance Survey Ireland booth in the Exhibit Hall this Thursday through Saturday -- you don't have to be registered for the conference to visit the Hall - it is a free visit! To see a list of most of the exhibitors please visit the FGS Website.

If you want to attend the full conference or just one day --just come to the Hynes Convention Center in Boston and register at the door!
