June is my busy genealogy month

I began blogging on June 2, 2007. I had already been blogging for several years about the Federation of Genealogical Society’s conferences. I was hoping to do an overview post about past posts and changes in this blog over the years. Instead, we are busy gearing up for the graduation party for my youngest granddaughter. My other hours have been filled with creating and updating a long list of presentations in three genealogical institute courses for this June. I created a list of my titles and a time grid for myself and thought I should just post the list here. I may not do much blogging in June, but I will still be busy with client reports and teaching. I’m not the only faculty member in these courses. Each has some fantastic, knowledgeable, and experienced presenters.
