We had a fantastic meeting which lasted two days.  The statewide Genealogical Society had their annual meeting at our place.  It was absolutely fascinating to listen to all of the speakers who walked about 150 people through the process of finding their ancestors.

They had experts in many different areas of ancestry.  One thing they really stressed was the importance of finding all of the cemeteries and documenting them.  There are many very small remote cemeteries in Iowa with all of the small town farms where no one knows who is buried in those areas.

The guests learned about new apps on their phones and many other new websites that are being developed with the purpose of finding generations in your family tree.

Lunch was served both days.  They also turned our Golfers Lounge into a book store where there were many different types of books with lists of names and lineage.  Many of the books were even from small church groups who had lists of names of members who were all related.  The book sale served as a fundraiser for the Genealogical Society.  They also auctioned off a really cool quilt to raise additional funds.

I have an amazing husband. Three entertaining children and I work for my family's business. What's that mean? It means I work too much and do the jobs no one else wants to do. The benefit is that I got to make up my title. The Wizard of Fun. It's one of the advantages of working at the family's business. You get to make up titles. I decided I need to share all my adventures and misadventures with the world. At the very least, my mom. She'll read just about anything.
