My Target NGS 2013 Conference Sessions - Friday, May 10

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 Friday, 10 May sessions (I've added the syllabus page numbers so I can print them out):

8 a.m. F301: Dawne Slater Putt - Fail! When the Record is Wrong
8 a.m. F307: William T. Ruddock - Colonial New York Genealogy

9:30 a.m. F312: Elizabeth Shown Mills - Trousers, Black Domestic, Tacks, and Housekeeping Bills: "Trivial Details" Can Solve Research Problems!
9:30 a.m. F317: Karen Mauer Green - Cutting Through the Confusion: Research in Upstate New York

11 a.m. F322:  Sharon Tate Moody - Strategy for Research Success: How to Analyze Your Evidence and Plan Your Next Step
11 a.m. F327: Laura Murphy DeGrazia - Spanning the Great New York Abyss: Connecting generations When No Vital Records Exist

2:30 p.m. F342:  Julie Miller - Will the Real Molly Brown Please Stand Up?

2:30 p.m. F349: Lisa Louise Cooke - Google Search Strategies for Common Surnames:  Quality Results in Less Time

4:00 p.m. F351: Harold Henderson - "Are We There Yet?" Proof and the Genealogy Police
4:00 p.m.  F352: Thomas W. Jones - Planning "Reasonably Exhaustive" Research

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