More From the Ohio Genealogical Society Conference
Posted by Diane

We’re hearing about 600 genealogists have gathered here in Cincinnati for the Ohio Genealogical Society annual conference, yesterday and today at the Sharonville Sheraton hotel.

 

Genealogical societies from Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky are here, as well as book vendors and exhibitors including RootsMagic, WorldVitalRecords and the Godfrey Memorial Library. Thursday night, the revamped genealogy department of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County stayed open late for night-owl researchers.

 

One first-time conference attendee just told me he couldn’t wait to get home—after learning in a class about FamilySearch Labs’ Ohio death certificates collection, he spent hours finding new ancestral information. Now he’s chomping at the bit to enter everything in his software.

 

A psychic convention is happening in the convention center right across the street from this conference. We thought about organizing a field trip, or sending a contingent to persuade them to open a booth here in the OGS exhibit hall. Imagine the brick wall-breaking potential.

We’ve been taking photos we’ll post early next week in a little slideshow, including one showing the most-decorated genealogist we know. You’ll see what we mean.
