FGS Conference Photographs - Post 1

I took a few pictures at the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas two weeks ago. Not as many as I wanted to - I seem to forget to take pictures when I'm involved in discussions with people, and one day my wife took the camera to Hot Springs to take pictures of Bill Clinton's birthplace for some reason.

There was a restriction on taking pictures during the presentations also, so my hope to get photos of some of the world-class speakers went for naught.

Here are some of the photos from FGS 2009:

1) The FGS exhibit with Drew Smith, Karen Green and Lou Szucs posing:

2) Looking down the "100" aisle in the Exhibit Hall. This was during one of the breaks between presentations:

3) Looking down the "200" aisle (there were six aisles as I recall) with Dean Richardson ( in the foreground:

4) The exhibit showing the mini-theater showing highlights. There were about 20 computer terminals in back of the display with many employees helping patrons find their ancestral data:

5) The exhibit with several interactive computers for patrons to search for their ancestral records:

There will be a second post with some people I met at the FGS Conference.
