Friday Fun: California Family History Expo!

Friday at the Expo – Part 2
Saturday at the Expo

It’s Friday, and what could be more FUN than opening day of the California Family History Expo?! The following are a few scenes from around the Exhibit Hall today.

Bloggers of Honor (BOH) A.C. Ivory and Sheri Fenley.

Amy Coffin teaches a mini-workshop, “Social Networking Open House.”

Becky Wiseman and Thomas MacEntee.

Paula Hinkel talks to a group about the Southern California Genealogical Society.

BOH Katherine Doyle waves hello from the California Genealogical Society booth.

Ron Arons is a brave man who talks/writes about criminal ancestors, and is not afraid to wear horizontal stripes.

The Mayflower Society sent a couple of representatives.

Sheri Fenley picks up her charts from The Chart Chick, Janet Hovorka.

Either it’s a big chart, or Sheri isn’t very tall!

There’s lots of SHOPPING to do!

I picked up this cute shirt for my daughter! I also got a shirt for my husband, but I won’t show it here, on the off chance that he actually reads my blog (he doesn’t).

The Exhibit Hall is buzzing with excited attendees who are enjoying a day of genealogy. Rumor has it that over over 800 people have registered to attend the Expo this weekend! I’m having a wonderful time visiting with old friends and meeting new ones – if you’re at the Expo today, please stop by the Blogger tables and say hello!
