Family History Fair Pictures

I posted my experiences at the Escondido Family History Fair on Saturday. I took too few pictures during the lectures and in the Exhibit Hall. Here are some of the ones I took.

Leland Meitzler was the Keynote speaker, and the folks at this FHC made a large banner (maybe 8 x 10 feet?) with his keynote title on it - I couldn't get far enough back to get all of Leland in this picture. The stage in back of Leland had antiques and artifacts displayed by the Escondido South Stake members.

Did you notice that they spelled "genealogy" wrong? :) Leland wore his power black suit with flashy gray shirt and tie all day - very professional! And a big smile, too.

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society had a table in the Exhibit Hall. There was a poster, some handouts on the table and a laptop showing the web site and blog.

The photo above shows John Finch (the current Program and PR chairman) and Gary Brock (the current President and Webmaster).

I took a picture of the San Diego Genealogical Society table too, with three pretty ladies (Joy Walsh, Kaye Boozel, Marna Clemmons) taking names and handing out information:

The SDGS table had a large publicity board, some of the SDGS publications, recent newspaper publicity articles, and a signup list for a free newsletter via email.

The only photo of a speaker in action that I took was of Tom Underhill during his talk about Digital Photographs. He managed to pose in the two seconds between the time I raised the camera and the flash went off.

The screen says "Don't drown in images." Tom's presentations are always lively and fun.

I wish that I had taken pictures of the other genealogy and heritage societies in the Exhibit Hall.
