Lucky me, I have German ancestors on both my maternal and paternal lines! I am currently researching the names SICK and SELL in Schleswig-Holstein, SCHNEIDER in Hessen and KUNDERS (Conard) in North Rhineland - Westphalia. I enjoy doing German research and trying to remember some of the high school German language that I took oh so long ago.

Genealogy Generosity at Jamboree

The SCGS and GeneaBloggers crew really went out of their way!  These are the items that I had in goody bags - pretty cool stuff, eh?  Oh, and as I learned in the Blogger Summit II class, I need a disclaimer.  I received these items as free gifts.  I do use some of the products, and some I have yet to try.  Any opinions that I express later will be based solely on my experiences with services/products.  

Now with that out of the way....

I should mention that the Google for Genealogists CD was part of a 10 pack of webinars from Legacy Family Tree.  (It looks as if there is just one from my picture).

Thank you vendors and GeneaBloggers for the great stuff!

JAMBOREE!!!! Yee haw

Can't believe that I am finally here!  And that I finally managed to get onto the internet at the Marriott.  (I'm still not sure how I did it!)

I've left the boys at home, but I have left Riko (our cat) in charge.  Hopefully the husband and son will mind the cat.

Tomorrow starts with a tour of the Southern California Genealogical Society library.  I'm so excited.  Apparently they have a great German and Cornish collection, and I can't wait to get a look at it.

I am going to try and blog everyday, alternating between this blog and the MySavages blog.

Think I've died and gone to genealogy heaven!
