Checking out the SCGS Jamboree Exhibits - Post 2

There were many exhibitors at the SCGS Jamboree at the Burbank airport Hotel and convention Center last weekend. I took some pictures of some of them. Part 1 is here. Here is my second installment:

1) I stopped by the Ancestry.com display on Friday afternoon and met Tony Macklin, who I've talked to on the telephone a few times:



2) I had made arrangements with Lisa Louise Cooke to do an interview for her Genealogy Gems podcast on Friday afternoon, and her daughter Lacey took this picture afterwards:



Kiril Kundurazieff (the Mad Macedonian) has a funny story on his blog about coming by Lisa's exhibit while doing the interview, and a good picture of the three of us. I will let you know when, or maybe if, the podcast is available from Lisa's pod- and video-cast empire.

3) Here's another picture of the Family Roots Publishing table showing Patty and Leland Meitzler frantically selling books.



4) The Generation Maps exhibit was one of the busier places. Kim and Janet Hovorka kept their chart printer real busy! Here's the lovely Janet posing in front of their display:


You can see a picture of Janet and I posing with the 8-generation pedigree chart that she printed out for me here. I'm trying to create "head shot" photos for as many ancestors as possible so that I can have Generation Maps create a really nice wall chart. It won't be 60+ feet of course. I'm thinking more of a fan chart with 10 generations. One for me, one for my wife. We can probably wallpaper several rooms with them!

That is all of the usable pictures I have from the exhibit area. Seriously, I meant to take a lot more, but talking to people seemed to be more important than taking their picture.
