My Texas genealogy friends probably think I'm flaky because I never attend state or regional genealogy conferences or events. The reality is that most of them fall at least partially during the week and I can't do that. Believe me, I'd love to leave my kid with a box of cereal and a television remote, but the state of Texas frowns on that.
However, the planets have aligned and I get to go to the upcoming Forensic Genealogy Institute.
Woo-hoo! ::: throws confetti::::
I put this institute on my genealogy bucket list, but didn't expect to be able to go for a couple years. The institute appeals to me because of the subject matter. I want to be well-versed in the record groups they cover.
Special thank to my husband for taking a Wednesday 5:30am flight so I can do this.
I'll have a full report when I get back. There's still time to register if you want to join me.
