BURBANK – More than 30 Geneabloggers mobbed the VIP room at the Daily Grill restaurant on Saturday evening. Several non-blogging restaurant patrons were seen running out the door as the Geneabloggers converged.
Some of the contraband items confiscated from the bloggers. It is not known what purpose these items served, as none of the bloggers would tell. One blogger reportedly told a non-blogger that “if she was meant to know, she would have them.” Several bloggers were seen wearing a black ribbon with the words, “Rock Star.” It is assumed that these are some sort of blogger gang “colors,” which will be banned at future blogger gatherings.
Many bloggers were seen periodically checking their iPhones, presumably to find out of other bloggers were writing or Tweeting about them. Pictured here is Dick Eastman’s phone showing a photo of the license plate on one of his cars.
Several Geneabloggers were seen engaging in a genealogy drinking game. The rules reportedly required each player to draw his/her family tree while doing a shot of his/her choice between each generation.
Sheri Fenley was the undisputed winner, as she was the only person who could draw her tree from memory and remain standing after the game. Sheri is pictured here tearing her tree out of the paper tablecloth.
DISCLAIMER: There were no genealogy drinking games going on at the Geneablogger dinner. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
