eGroup Meet at the Conference
- If you have looked at the conference schedule, I am sure you will
notice that it is full and overflowing. But...where there is a will,
there is a way!!
I have three suggestions, one of which may work.
1. The Brazos Center will remain open on Thursday from 2:15-5:30.
This is the designated tour time. However, knowing that there
would be some that would rather be in the computer or book rooms,
I will be at the center so these rooms can stay open. That will
leave the use of 3 rooms that will be empty during this time
2. On Friday from 2:15-3:45, we will have an empty room. I have
some strong reservations at recommending this as a time period
because I sit in Karen Hobbs' sessions every chance I get. If
eGroups were to meet at this time period, Karen Hobbs or the
making of Czech Cheese Strudel (I want to watch this also)
sessions would have to be missed.
3. Friday from 5:00-6:00, after sessions and before dinner. This is
only a one hour time slot, so it may not be long enough to get
everyone in the right direction and still be in the dinner line on
Oh me, decisions, decisions!
One of the makings for a good genealogy conference is to have so many
good sessions that attendees have a hard time choosing which to
attend. But, if each one of you will send me a message giving me
your choice of a time slot (Thurs. afternoon 2:15-5:30 -
Fri.afternoon 2:15-3:45 or Fri. 5:00-6:00), I will keep track and let
you know the results. (Let's take a vote this week and I will post
the results on Friday afternoon.) That way, next week when I make
the room schedule, I will know which room to book the meeting of the
Will this work for all of you?
PS Tomorrow, Tuesday, as a Conference Note, I will give some info
on the session, "The History of the Czech-Moravian Brethren: from
Czech Lands to Texas". Wednesday....will be "Mr. Czech Day". Most
of you know that my personal nickname for Leo Baca is "Mr. Czech"
because of all the years he has spent researching. Wednesday, will
be a little about him, his books, and his sessions.
