Upcoming on the road

Genealogical societies are busy places each and every fall, as the fall conference season gets underway.

Road TrippingAnd The Legal Genealogist is heading off into this fall conference season with an absolutely packed schedule.

From Chicago this weekend to Hudson County, New Jersey, in December, I’m looking forward to traveling around the United States, getting to see old friends and meet new ones, to share what I know and — the great joy of being a genealogical lecturer — learning from others about this shared interest of ours.

So… will I see you during one of this fall’s road trips?
