Ohio Genealogical Society Conference Opens

Can it really be late April already? It’s been a whirlwind month in my house. But an exciting one, especially as I’m now in Cincinnati getting ready for the opening of the 2013 Ohio Genealogical Society Conference. The theme, "Expanding Your Ancestry through Technology," is a good one, and I noticed a lot of technology and social media presentations on the schedule. Tom Jones will kick off the conference at 11:00 am with the keynote address, “Strategies for Finding ‘Unfindable’ Ancestors.” That’s a topic I’m eager to hear more about, since I have an abiding suspicion that a couple of my ancestors were dropped off by aliens. After that, the doors to the Exhibit Hall open, and a in the afternoon a great line-up of speakers will take to the podiums. The action continues pretty much nonstop through Saturday afternoon.

OGS doesn’t have Official Bloggers or any such thing, but I’ll try to fit in a few reports, time permitting, during or shortly after the conference. In the meantime, if you’re at the OGS conference and see me, please stop and say hello. I’d love to meet you!


  1. Shelley, thanks for blogging about your experience at the OGS Conference. For those of us unable to attend, it's great to hear what you learn and discover from the keynotes, sessions, exhibits, and encounters with geneafriends. Have a great time!

  2. Thank you for writing about the conference, Shelley! (Wish I were there.) I've seen many comments already today, on Twitter, about the Tom Jones presentation. I also tend to think that the pasts of some ancestors are just plain unfindable. But maybe it's just a matter of time . . .


Thank you for reading my blog! I welcome and appreciate your comments.
