Viva Las Vegas!

What is more fun than a room full of genealogists?  A hotel full!

The largest gathering I have attended was NERGC in Springfield, MA in 2011, within commuting distance of my home.  I have considered the genealogy cruises, but never took the plunge.  When the location for the NGS 2013 Family History Conference was announced, I was more than tempted.  I have never visited Las Vegas, and my favorite traveling companion was game.

We anxiously awaited the opening of registration, and made our plane reservations.  There will be side trips.  One of my father's most memorable trips was his flight over the Grand Canyon out of Las Vegas, and he was not usually a willing traveler.  The research of a range of possibilities continues.

Then a week ago I learned that I had been planning my SECOND trip to Vegas.  My son announced he will be married in the Elvis Chapel on April 20.  I wouldn't miss it for the world!  And I'll be adding that date in the family tree very soon.

Meanwhile, I'll be blogging about the conference.  I am honored to be selected as an Official Blogger and will be sharing my experiences as a first-timer!
