My Target NGS 2013 Conference Sessions - Thursday, May 9

I want to list the selected NGS 2013 Conference sessions that I would like to attend.  I may not attend all of them, due to schedule conflicts, space constraints, or time conflicts.  But if I write them out, I am more likely to attend more of them. 

The Conference Syllabus is available for download at if you are an NGS Conference registrant.  Unfortunately, the syllabus doesn't provide the session times.  

The Conference Program ( provides the times, but not the room numbers for each session.  The NGS2013 mobile app provides times, session number, speaker and title, but not the room number.  Why can't everything be in one place?

Here are my target Thursday, 9 May sessions (I've added the syllabus page numbers so I can print them out):

8 a.m. T202: Thomas W. Jones - Maximizing Your Use of Evidence
8 a.m. T208: Barbara Ann Renick - Search Techniques for Computer-Indexed Sources

9:30 a.m. T215: Mara Fein - Finding and Using Records in Southern California
9:30 a.m. T220:  Shamele Jordon - Cloud Genealogy 

11 a.m.: T223: Kay Havelich Freiland:  Were Your Ancestors Friends? Finding and Using Quaker Records
11 a.m. T228: Kimberly T. Powell - Software Strategies: Choosing the Best Genealogy software for Your Genealogy Project

2:30 p.m. T241: Elizabeth Shown Mills - Information Overload! Effective Project Planning, Research, Data Management, and Analysis
2:30 p.m. T247: Craig Roberts Scott:  Finding Females: Maiden Name Not Known

4:00 p.m. T253: David McDonald - Lutherpalians and Presbygationalists: Where Did Grandma's Church Go?
4:00 p.m. T252: Deborah A. Abbott - Methods and Strategies: Reconstructing a Family History

This may be an interesting day!!!  I am glad that there are 30 minute breaks between sessions rather than 15 minutes.

Hi Randy,

What a good idea to post the sessions you plan to attend! I'll probably see you at some of them, as some of your choices match mine.
