The 2009 Conference of the Polish Genealogical Society of Connecticut and the Northeast is now history. I heard comments that this was the best conference the society has ever hosted.
I presented two lectures and one panel discussion. I only attended two lectures (the very first lecture presented by Kahlile Mehr on “East European Internet Sites” and the very last lecture presented by Lisa Alzo on “Slovak Land or No Man’s Land: Finding Your Slovak and Rusyn Roots.”
I spent most of my time at the conference giving consultations. I hope the people who consulted with me left with some useful ideas. At least two of the people left knowing that the Family History Library holds microfilms that may be of interest to them in their search for Eastern European ancestors.
Tonight will have to be an early night. I’m headed for Ellis Island tomorrow morning!
