FGS Photos - some Vendor shots

I took very few photos in the Exhibit Hall this year.  Here are some of the ones I took of the "bigger" genealogy database providers:

1) www.FamilySearch.org:

FamilySearch had three "sets" ion their premium space - the view above is the free access to patrons using the FamilySearch record collections.  The other two sets were to educate patrons about the Wiki, the Forums, the Learning Center and more.

2)  The New England Historic Genealogical  Society (www.AmericanAncestors.org) exhibit featured a "research help" area (Chris Child is on the left helping a patron) and an information and book selling area (on the right):

3)  Ancestry.com was a premium sponsor, and their display looked like this:

On the left, Michelle Pfister and Duff Wilson (not shown) displayed Family Tree Maker 2012 and the TreeSync feature, while on the right there were computers for patrons to search on Ancestry's databases.

4)  Fold3.com (formerly Footnote.com) had their own exhibit.  That's Gordon Atkinson on the right talking to patrons:

5)  There were many more exhibitors, but I didn't get good photos of them or didn't take photos of them.

I had a good conversation with George and Grant at the Geni.com exhibit, and with Daniel Horowitz and Schelly Dardashti at the MyHeritage exhibit.

I have a few more pictures of exhibitors, which I'll post on Wednesday.
