I'm heading to Springfield MO Sept. 11 & 12 to speak at the Ozarks Genealogical Society conference. A beautiful location near Branson and Laura Ingalls Wilder's Rocky Ridge Farm. Friday night: A rousing evening of the Google Earth Game Show (do you like prizes?) and Saturday will be a day saturated in genealogical investigative strategies. Hope to see many of you there!
The Ozarks Genealogical Society fall conference, “Be the Family Sherlock,” is scheduled to be Friday and Saturday, Sept. 11-12.

If you live in Iowa this might be a good time to let your state know that digitizing your newspapers is a priority:
Current Iowa newspapers are not being microfilmed by the state's historical society, as in the past. Make the most of old and new newspapers for family history research with these tips.
