This morning I have begun preparations for the 3 day adventure that will be attending the 40th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree, in Burbank, Ca.
I have no clue how much sleep I will get! (That's what the Busses will be used for!) ;-D
I made a badge using my new "Business" Card for publicizing my Blog, a list of my Surnames, and some humor (Poor, Poorer, Middle-Class and Rich? Honest, Crooked, or Just Plain Foolish? Famous or Not?). ;-D
I will get home from work tonite at 1230am, but will have to leave home, in Santa Ana, at 3am, to catch the 1st of 4 busses that will take me to Anaheim, Los Angeles, and finally, Burbank, getting me there by 830am.
Each night, I will make the return trip home, to drop stuff off, and check on Nikita, and maybe do a blog post.
For anyone looking aghast at this...Don't freak out! ;-D
I have never owned a car, and all my life I have used Mass Transit, my bicycle, and my own 2 feet to get around 5 counties. ;-D
My Swag Carrier!!!
Sturdy, large, and roomy, this sucker will no doubt be the envy of all who see the little darling! ;-D
I will have a box of paper clips to help with organization. ;-D
In this portable file carrier I will have MY Pedigree Chart, going back 7 Generations to William Wells of PA., His Descendant Chart, and the Descendant Charts for William Preston Daugherty, and Tome Kundurdziev, plus 6 Note Pads for recording observations, and note taling at all the sessions I will attend.
It will also hold my Bus Schedules, and Schedule of Sessions I will attend.
I will have my camera, and batteries, and pens a plenty, plus 500 Business Cards to pass out as the opportunity presents itself.
I am very much looking forward to attending, and to meeting not just my fellow Roots Bloggers, but some of the famous researchers whose books, and websites I use and admire, and link to.
My next task is to write an intro post to folks visitng here, from Jamboree (Link to come).
