We’re in Kansas City on our virtual tour—but today we take a brief timeout for a special announcement: You Can Be a Winner On the Journey!
The California Family History Expo will held in Pleasanton, California, October 8-9, 2010. The California Genealogical Society is the local sponsor. I’ll be blogging live from the event and I’ll also be speaking. Many well-known genealogists and genealogical writers and bloggers will be there, too, including Amy Coffin, Lisa Alzo, Thomas MacEntee, Ron Arons, Lisa Louise Cooke, Jean Wilcox Hibben, Janet Hovorka, Leland Meitzler, Sheri Fenley, Kathryn Doyle, and many others.
You could be there, too! Here’s your chance to win a complimentary ticket to the California Family History Expo, courtesy of Family History Expos, Inc., and GeneaBlogie.
All you have to do is tell me one place you would go on your own Grand Genealogy Journey. Tell why you go would go there, and name one important research resource to be found there. You can tell me in an email or in a blog post of your own. Entries must be received by 11;59 pm, Pacific Time, on Tuesday, September 28, 2010. Email your entries or the URL of your blog post to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will choose the best entry in my sole discretion.
