FGS Conference Photographs - Post 2

Post 1 of my photographs from the 2009 Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference in Little Rock is here.

Here are more photos from my five days at the 2009 FGS Conference:

1) The Bloggers summit had a panel of four, with Drew Smith, George G. Morgan, Jim Ericson and Gena Philibert Ortega on the panel shown below. This was a really dark room - and I didn't get pictures of the people in the audience, and we didn't get all of the bloggers present together for a picture:

2) At the exhibit, Jennifer Utley (left) and Juliana Smith (right) posed for a picture (this was my first time meeting Juliana, a blogger):

3) David Allen Lambert was at the New England Historical and Genealogical Society exhibit throughout the conference (along with Tom Champoux and Rhonda McClure):

4) Dean Richardson (blogger at, and owner of, with his display:

5) Gordon Erickson and Pat Richley (DearMYRTLE) were married in mid-August, and it was wonderful to see them at the Conference. Here is the happy couple, who stayed close to the FGS exhibit for most of the conference:

6) had a large exhibit at the end of Aisle 200, and had scheduled "classes" to display their websites -,, and In the picture below, Jim Ericson is presenting one of the talks:

7) Leland Meitzler drove all of his Family Roots Publishing books from Salt Lake City to Little Rock. He seemed to do a good business with his products:

That's all of the pictures that I have that are fit to print. I thought that I took several more photos of notable genealogy persons ... oh, well!

One final note: It sure seemed like the exhibit area was not "buzzing" like we experienced at the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree. The exhibit area at FGS was a little larger, but the crowds seemed to be about half of the Jamboree crowd count.
