NGS: Day one

Posted by on

NGS 2012 began today with a huge line to enter the exhibit hall.

Exhibit hall traffic was heavy throughout the day as thousands came to get a good deal on products and service and find answers to their genealogy questions.

This year several babies joined the fun.  Family Roots Publishing’s baby already has six conferences under his belt – and he’s only a few months old.  Looks like selling books with Mom, Dad and Grandpa Leland are a near certainty for the hungry little guy.

Family Tree Magazine is based in Cincinnati so Diane Haddad had a visit from her family and brought her little man to the MyHeritage booth where he spent some time hanging out with genealogist Schelly Talalay Dardashti.

We also had visits from hundreds of happy WorldVitalRecords members and were happy to provide them with our special show prices.

DearMyrtle stopped by along with Dick Eastman, Thomas MacEntee and other genealogy crowd favorites.

The show so far has been busy and productive.  We hope you’ll drop by our booth 430 to say hello and try out our products.

I’m hoping for a lull in traffic at some point so I can attend some lectures and other events.
