BIFHSGO Conference final afternoon

In the Research Room at last weekend's BIFHSGO conference attendees made good use of free trial access to ancestry.ca, britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk, findmypast.com, irishtimes.com/ancestor, rootsireland.ie, thegenealogist.co.uk.
When those proved inadequate to break down genealogical brick walls an unconventional box shaped brick wall was available for people to post their problems. These will be posted on the BIFHSGO web site in due course for others to peruse, and Research Room host Ken McKinlay will be reviewing some of them on his Family Tree Knots blog.

Even late on the final afternoon of the conference the Archive CD Books and Global Genealogy stands were attracting customers.

BIFHSGO President Glenn Wright and conference Program Chair Jane Down were in frequent consultation over issues throughout the conference.

Doug Hoddinott was always at hand to resolve audiovisual issues, here with Lisa Louise Cooke of the Genealogy Gems podcast. This was just prior to her final lecture in which she mentioned she has a Google alert set up for her name. I wonder if it works?
