Good Morning Cincinnati!

I spent the day researching my family in Batavia in nearby Clermont County. The clerks at the Probate Court are very friendly and helpful. Record books are located on shelves in 2 rooms with plenty of work space. Microfilm and index books are also easily accessible. Over all it is extremely user friendly. I found more than I was looking for. The clerks said they have had a lot of traffic recently, but were not aware of the NGS Conference in Cincinnati. I gave them a heads up and they took it in stride!

Tomorrow the conference begins with the opening session in the ball room on the third floor at 8am. The Exhibit Hall on the first floor opens at 9:30am and there are ten morning sessions scheduled for 11am. These rooms are located on the second floor. 

Luncheons are scheduled on the third floor at 12:15pm. If you are not attending a luncheon, there will be lunch buffets at the three conference hotels. These are designed to get you in and out quickly. Also there is a small coffee shop on the first floor by the entrance and concessions in the Exhibit Hall

The afternoon sessions are scheduled at 2:30pm and 4pm. The Exhibit Hall will close at 5:30pm. You will need your badge to enter the lecture rooms, but the Exhibit Hall is free and open to the public. 

*Tip: The area behind the last row of seats in each lecture room is reserved for scooters and wheelchairs. If you want to sit up front, please arrive 30 minutes early so the room monitor can arrange a place for you.

*Tip: Morning expressway traffic in the Cincinnati area (includes northern Kentucky) can be crazy, so allow yourself some extra driving time.

See you there!
