Genealogy Bloggers

On April 16, 2015 while attending the NERGC conference in Providence, Rhode Island I decided to attend the Genealogy Blogging Special Interests Group.

I am very glad I decided to join this group of wonderful dedicated Bloggers. The Group was led and sponsored by Heather Wilkinson Rojo ( Also present was Pat Richley-Erickson (better known as Dear Myrtle), Russ Worthington (Cousin Russ), and many MSOG (Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, Inc.) members; also  I have to apologize to others  present that I do not remember your names as I was so excited to be in the same room with people that I have only seen and heard in their chat rooms or on Legacy Family Tree Webinar Wednesday. A majority of the bloggers in the room are members of New England Geneabloggers on Facebook. I am not a big user of Facebook so didn't know of the group before. I am a member of Geneabloggers, however  with founder Thomas MacEntee.
First they gave all us bloggers a string of green beads to wear. I guess Thomas MacEntee started the tradition so participants at the conference will ask about the beads and then you can promote your blog and blogging in general. Great idea.
We went around the room and talked about ourselves and our blogs or why we were sitting in on the group. It was a very warm and welcoming group which shared ideas with each other and the time flew by. I enjoyed getting to know something about everyone and want to say Thank You.
