Seattle’s siren song

Seattle bound!

The Legal Genealogist has her feet off the ground. Literally and figuratively.

Literally, because I’m winging my way across the country en route to Seattle for this weekend’s 90th anniversary spring seminar of the Seattle Genealogicial Society.

And figuratively, because I’m winging my way across the country en route to Seattle for this weekend’s 90th anniversary spring seminar of the Seattle Genealogicial Society.

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 18, I’m so very honored to be the speaker at this anniversary celebration, presenting:

    • How Knowing the Law Makes Us Better Genealogists

    • Where There Is — and Isn’t — a Will

    • “Don’t Forget the Ladies” — a Genealogist’s Guide to Women and the Law

    • Using Court Records to Tell the Stories of Our Ancestors’ Lives

Then on Sunday, May 19, it’s a sold-out advanced workshop on Building a Family Using Circumstantial Evidence.

If you’re in the neighborhood tomorrow, come join us. Walk-ins are welcome at Fairview Christian School, 844 NE 78th St., Seattle, with the festivities kicking off at 9 a.m.

Hope to see you there!

    Don’t know if you’ve ever been to Seattle, but it’s a beautiful city! Hope you get a chance to go outside Fairview Christian School and enjoy a little of it!!

    • Judy G. Russell says:

      Sure am getting a chance to see some of it, Mary Ann — and having a ball! What lovely people… and oh how any genealogist would drool over the Seattle Genealogical Society’s library…

  2. Laura says:

    We’ve been looking forward to you coming! So glad it is finally here. See you on Saturday!

  3. Welcome to our lovely city. I’m looking forward to both the conference and the workshop! Yes, SGS has a great library, including the George Kent New Jersey Genealogy Collection. It used to be in the second row of shelves from the entrance.

    • Judy G. Russell says:

      Thanks, Dawn, and please say hello tomorrow too! The Kent collection is just where you remember it… I was drooling over it this afternoon.

  4. Four presentations! I’m so impressed. I think you must be at the top of your game. If you are suggesting that figuratively you are “winging it,” I’d say that to the contrary you are just plain excellent at what you do.

    Unfortunately, Seattle is very far from CT where we are. Good luck, and have a great time!

    • Judy G. Russell says:

      Seattle is just a tad far… but the Massachusetts Genealogical Council on 20 July isn’t all that far from Connecticut!

  5. What a fantastic day! We are so lucky and honored to have Judy as our featured speaker this year. She did an amazing job today. Can’t wait for the workshop tomorrow.

    Thank you for your great presentations! You managed to get the legalese into your presentations, and at the same time make it accessible to those who are not used to the language. Great case studies and explanations of why people did what they did!
    I look forward to continuing to follow your blog and to learning more.
    Thanks so much!
