I was able to speak with Michael Mikos and Cynthis Piech briefly at the end of the day’s events and get a photo of each of them.

Today’s lectures were easy to listen to: entertaining, interesting, and informative. Tomorrow’s lectures delve into some pretty heavy stuff: archives, history, gazetteers, sources, cemeteries, and more.
