Meeting Genealogy Folks in January 2009 -- Post 394 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

1)  Randy and DearMYRTLE:

In early January 2009, I and a number of other geneabloggers were invited to the first blogger meeting in Salt Lake City.  The week after, the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy started and many of the attendees and staff were in Salt Lake City.

I had the pleasure of meeting DearMYRTLE for the first time that weekend.

2)  The SLIG faculty and staff have a brunch at one of the hotels on Sunday before SLIG, and DearMYRTLE invited me to come along.  Here is a photo of the luncheon table:

The benefit for me was wonderful company, including many of the important people in the genealogy industry, and a nice lunch.

3)  That night, there was a Transitional Genealogist Forum/ProGen meetup for dinner, and I took a photograph of Christy Fillerup, Harold Henderson and Angela McGhie:

The photos all tell me these pictures were taken on 11 January 2009.  I wrote about this day in Day 4 in SLC - a day of football, food and good company.
