Pictures from Escondido Family History Fair

I mentioned the exhibit hall at the 2010 Escondido Family History Fair in my post At the Escondido Family History Fair. I took a few pictures (and I thought I took more...but it must have been someone else's camera!), including:

1) The exhibit booths consisted of a table, an easel and a mesh background with the name of the society fastened to it. This is Ruth Himan and John Finch setting up the Chula Vista Genealogical Society booth. Ruth made large posters showing the three CVGS bloggers (Ruth, Susi and Randy) and a poster with her Grandma's Camp newspaper article:

2) We have always been Fair neighbors to the San Diego African-American Genealogy Research Group . Here is Margaret Lewis and the society's display:

3) Gene Powell and (hmmm, I've forgotten, sorry) at the Computer Genealogy society of San Diego display. You can see the video display they set up on the right. A great idea, and effective.

4) The San Diego Genealogical Society had many handouts on the table. Pam Journey and Mary Card are happy campers in this picture:

There were quite a few other genealogical and lineage societies that had display booths, and some of the lineage society folks were in costumes.

Ruth Himan took many more pictures and posted them on her Genealogy Is Ruthless Without Me blog here.
