AYWalton: howdy jhonora! We missed you!

Selma: Think jhonora is multi tasking

AYWalton: it is over and all went wonderfully well.

VKNGA: Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy AYW!!!!!!!!!!!!

AYWalton: Had a great time and after four presentations I am one tired soul!

Selma: I am sure you are...

AYWalton: Vicki and Thomas had tons of visitors to the table.

Selma: Whereis alt..

AYWalton: and we have lots of names. I will be blogging about it.

Selma: Oh great..I am sure VKN is glad to hear that.. LOL

VKNGA: Share the happenings I just bet you are a tad tired ayw

AYWalton: indeed.

VKNGA: Tons huh

AYWalton: sessions were fun---I only got to research on one day, and then I was at the convention center for the conference on Friday and Saturday.

VKNGA: Wonderful

AYWalton: good feedback and TONS of fun!

Selma: Is the library open tonite?

AYWalton: Robin Stone was a good speaker.

jhonora: Hey AYWalton, Selma, vknga

AYWalton: the place was too dark while she spoke to put her on film.

VKNGA: I am glad to hear that AYW

AYWalton: hey wassup, johonora. Lots of presenters frequently mentioned AfriGeneas as well.

jhonora: Glad the conference is going well

VKNGA: So about what was the registration total AYW

AYWalton: it is now over.

Selma: What time is there now?

AYWalton: I think it was about 200. I think Mr. Witcher had hoped for more, but considering the time of year and the recession, it was not that bad.

VKNGA: great

AYWalton: folks came from St. Louis, Chicago, other parts of Indiana, Maryland, Virginia and 1 from California.

Selma: Lisa?

AYWalton: ...and Michigan. yes, Lisa. she is a good presenter.

Selma: Was there a dinner tonite?

AYWalton: My buddy Argyrie is here---and we are having a post conference pajama party in my room. (well a handful of us are!)

Selma: Is daviss there in her PJ's.. LOL

VKNGA: yes how is daviss

AYWalton: she is on the way in her jammies (or comfortable clothing) and bringing her laptop, too.

VKNGA: Daviss has to catch an early flight hope she found a ride

AYWalton: she has called cab for her ride to the airport.

VKNGA: Soooooo Curt Witcher is satisfied, AYW? great re daviss and cab

AYWalton: Now I am not sure about that, VKN. He is kind of an apologetic kind of guy and I did not see complete enthusiasm coming out of him. I think he had hoped for higher numbers, I suspect.

VKNGA: okies

AYWalton: I asked Tim if Witcher was happy and he seemed to think that Witcher was a bit disappointed about the numbers. Of course the marketing could have been stronger.

VKNGA: yes Too little too late

AYWalton: just not enough.

Selma: Money is tight this year for lots of seems as if lots of things going on

VKNGA: I do agree Selma and the future of money is tight and scary

AYWalton: yes, there is a recession going on as well.

Selma: Yes...personally I think it is going to be at least another 2 years before we see any let up

VKNGA: and it is a good thing that there seems to be an increase in local events genealogically

Seventies Soulchild: good evening all

AYWalton: I will say that I was disappointed in one thing---there were not many vendors.

VKNGA: was FTDNA there?

Selma: Were there alot of local folks there?

AYWalton: there were some but not that many. no one from DNA companies, nor software companies. let's put it this way. AfriGeneas was the only table that was genealogy related in the vendors area.

VKNGA: wow and gosh

AYWalton: the other were jewelry, no books, one lady with expensive art, somebody selling Frat/sorority stuff, and one lady selling key chains.

Selma: Wow is right... Wow again..

Seventies Soulchild: really??? Good lawd...

Selma: Evening seventies

Seventies Soulchild: Evening Selma

AYWalton: that was kind of odd, and I was disappointed at that.

VKNGA: howdy seventies

jhonora: I think disappointment is the right word, was there a very large planning committee?

VKNGA: Yes part of the fun at conferences is vendors

AYWalton: no one from Ancestry, or FamilyTreeDNA, or Sorenson, or RootsMagic, or.........

Seventies Soulchild: hey VKNGA, jhonora and AYWalton

AYWalton: exactly---I love going into the vendors area.

Selma: Is there an AA genealogical group in that area...

Seventies Soulchild: Well I went to an HBCU college fair today and saw much of the same. Everyone was selling something. :/

AYWalton: yes they were there and I did see them with a booth today. tons of jewelry always for sale at lots of HBCU type of events. here comes Vicki! welcome Indiana!!!!!!
