There are two seasons – Spring/Almost Summer and Late Summer/Fall – and for the rest of the year, the calendar is pretty much devoid of major (and even minor) events. Occasionally, an event or two takes place outside these times, but it’s truly rare.
So, even though the Official Genealogical Year is getting short, there are still plenty of things to do.
This weekend, for example, we exhibited at the 7th annual “Life in the Past Lane” Conference sponsored by the Friends of NARA – Pittsfield at the classy Williams Inn, in bucolic Williamstown, MA. If you missed it this year, plan on joining us next year for the 8th annual event. The location will be the same and the date has already been set for Saturday, September 17, 2011.

|The View From Point Lookout|
Here, you can learn about wikis for genealogy, emerging technology, researching WWII ancestors, preserving digital photos and a host of other useful topics. The organizers have put together three tracks (count ‘em, THREE) of breakout sessions to insure that you’ll have plenty of topical choices.
