Jamboree Memories!!

First of all I want to thank Thomas at Geneabloggers and Denise at The Family Curator for all they did for the Genea-bloggers, the gift bag they had put together was wonderful, the beads Thomas provided, I wore proudly! The Muffins Denise made were so good! The Genea-bloggers dinner was incredible and spending time with everyone was priceless. Thank you Thomas and Denise, thank you!

Just arrived home from the 2009 SoCal Genealogy Jamboree and I can tell you it was fantastic. I had the best time and met so many people...fantastic people! I had the Honor of meeting DearMYRTLE and footnoteMaven! Incredible Ladies!

I have taken photos and brought home lots of reading material. My favorite treasure is the complimentary chart from Janet at The Chart Chick, "Generation Maps", I have already been to Target, purchased a frame and will be locating a wall to hang it on! I love it. I will take photos of it and share it here. She can really do beautiful things with charts.

I have to unpack, organize, download photos and then I will be ready to post my experience and finds! All I can say is that Genealogy People are the best people on the planet, they get it! I also want to list everyone but want to make sure I don't forget anyone so I will be including that in my post too.

I am still on a high from the weekend, looking forward to next years Jamboree already!

I am SO HAPPY for you. You really deserved this wonderful experience. I can't wait to hear details and see pictures, but you take your time. We're not going anywhere.

Tammy Renee said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Good for you. You so deserve it.

Thank you Thomas, the honor truly was mine, the weekend was a blast and you made it happen, thank you for all that you did to have made it so great for all of us. I really came home with so much more and the Jamboree exceeded my expectations, I cannot wait until next year!

Thank you Becky and Rosie, it really was an experience of a lifetime! I am still flying high!

Gini! We dined one table away from each other and never met! I apologize for not being foreward enough to introduce myself around. I'm so new at blogging and felt a mite, um, green both with envy and immaturity. But I'll be there next year and shake your hand.
Thank you for being the first to post a comment on my blog.
