I returned home from FGS2011 this afternoon. Was a little sad to leave but anxious to get home and start back to work for my clients. I made a number of book purchases this week. When I have time to read them I’ll probably write a post about each book later.
An Atlas of Southern Trails to the Mississippi by Carrie Eldridge
Numbering Your Genealogy by Curran, Crane, Wray
Walking With Your Ancestors A Genealogist’s Guide to Using Maps and Geography by Melinda Kashuba
Finding Italian Roots by my favorite genealogical speaker John Philip Colletta
The Journey Takers by Leslie Albrecht Huber
Teaching Genealogy To Young People by Bee Bartron Koons
Following the Paper Trail A Multilingual Translation Guide by Johnathan D. Shea and William F. Hoffman
I won a door prize 1760-1818 Moving West of the Appalachians By Harry Emerick. And for renewing my ISGS membership I received At Home with Illinois Governors by Dan Monroe with Lura Lynn Ryan.
I also received a complimentary copy of the new ISGS Insider’s Guide to Illinois Genealogy.
I’ll be writing much more this week about my time at FGS2011 so please check back. If you attended, please share your thoughts about the conference in the comments.
Disclosure: I was an Official Blogger at FGS2011.
