Dance Party Friday!!

If you are up early this morning be sure to tune into Good Morning Cincinnati for Dance Party Friday with Bob Herzog! If you miss him today, no problem local 12 has old DPF routines. Be sure to watch Somewhere Out There for the traffic report!  

Finally at almost 6am, the internet is accessible again - my one major complaint about the hotel. Someone said this late night problem is caused by having too many genealogists concentrated in one location in the wee hours of the morning. Oooops, our secret is out! Genealogists are known to research late into the night!

Bundle up if you are going outside this morning. Frost warning! 34 degrees, but we should see 64 degree sometime today.

Friday sessions begin at 8:00am today and end at 5:30. The exhibit hall is open from 9:00am - 7:00pm. 

The Pavilion is the site for the roundtable of experts on Southern Ohio area research. The African American roundtable will be in the Colonnade, Both are at 5:45pm.

Two lineage society dinners today. The Settlers and Builders Luncheon will be in Bronze Ballroom B at 12:15. The Civil War Families Banquet is in the same place at 7:00pm.

Lectures I am attending today. 
     F11 - Locating and Using German Church Records.
     F18 - German Territories and Maps.
     F34 - Finding Rejected Claims and Pension Requests
     F43 - OGS Chapter Officers Meeting
     F44 - Tri State Area Resources Roundtable

Last night I was inducted into Century Families of Ohio. J. Mark Lowe was the speaker and was, as always, fantastic. His topic was Roads & Trails 'Cross The Ohio River. This is a great lecture about the who, what, where, when and how of our ancestors who ventured into the Ohio Frontier. (If you are going to the FGS Conference in Fort Wayne, you can catch Mark on Thursday, August 22, 2013.)

One last thing.  If you see some crazy looking people on the streets of downtown Cincy today, it's the annual Scavenger Hunt.

What  I am looking at in the Exhibit Hall: GenDetective, Flip-Pal, and books on German Research.

Have fun today. Tonight I will plan on posting earlier in the evening while I still have an internet connection!
