NGS Wrap-Up
Posted by Maureen

Wow. Wow. Wow. That's all I heard at last week's National Genealogical Society conference. It really was fantastic!  More than 2,700 individuals attended the four day event.  I got to meet blog fans, see Facebook friends and examine great photos. I presented lectures on 19th century picture analysis, 20th century photos in family collections and one on immigrant clues in images. 

When I wasn't lecturing I was in the exhibit hall giving private photo consultations and looking at photo-related stuff for sale.  Here's a snapshot view of some of the items I thought you'd be interested in.

I love these photo blocks from Echo Road. You personalize them using copies of your family photos.



Have fun with your photos by using them in games, such as a deck of cards.  These are from the folks at Ancestry Games.



I browsed from booth to booth looking for creative ways to express family history and found these lovely framed interpretations of a pedigree chart from Jill Means of Legacy Design.



Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of some of the other items I saw, but definitely take a look at these websites: 
  • John E. Groberg of Geneartogy had some beautiful oversize photo trees in his booth. 
  • Stories by Me had a selection of photo blocks, games, magnets and other items that you could personalize using copies of your photos.
  • If you're looking for a way to organize and incorporate your photos into your family history, check out Photo Loom.
Back next week with a new photo mystery! I need to rest from all the conference excitement <smile>.
