You can read all of the Twitter entries by searching for NGS2011 (the hashtag was #NGS2011, but not everyone used it).

I know that there are several other geneabloggers in Charleston - please let me know if I've missed your blog and your posts (email at rjseaver@cox.net, or comment on this post).

I will try to update this post over the next few days.

Thanks for including me on the list, Randy! Forgive me for being behind in reading blog posts. Just one small correction... my last name is actually Tapley-Matthews. I'm sure my husband would appreciate your including the "Matthews" part! LOL

You are awesome Randy! Things are so busy in the Goodrum household this month! You just saved me a bunch of time not having to go searching for NGS Conference posts!
