This morning was beautiful and sunny in London. Alvie and I first made a stop at the Olympia where the "Who Do You Think You Are? Live" conference will be held. Alvie thought it would be a good idea to check out where the APG booth would be and if things were all ready for us.
Security was good at the back entrance, and at first security did not wan to let us in, but in short order they must have figured we were innocent enough.
If they have as many people as they have in the past at this conference, it will be packed like sardines. There is not a lot of isle space between stands.
Everyone was working hard to get all the stands assembled. It is amazing to think that in less than 24 hours it would be ready for this huge event.
Alvie and I toured London (249 photos here) and then went to dinner at Pizza Express. On the way over, we met Dick Eastman and we all sat down for dinner.
I have been doing genealogy research since 2002 & have worked full time as a Professional Genealogist since 2008. I specialize in Polish and American-Canadian Genealogy. As a member of APG, I was the 2010/2011 President of the New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG). I have Certificates of Completion for studies in "Foundations of Forensic Genealogy" and "Advanced Forensic Genealogy Techniques". I have been a volunteer librarian at the local Family History Center, and a genealogy research consultant at “Ask the Expert” Ancestry Road Shows. I have traveled to Poland numerous times & researched in churches and archives. At conferences and special events, you may find me dressed up in my Sherlock Holmes outfit, or my Kujawy (the folk costume from the region in Poland where my ancestors came from).
