The Office of the Secretary of State and the Washington State Historical Society are partnering with Ancestry to bring a very special genealogical event to the Pacific Northwest.

Ancestry Day in Washington will be held in Tacoma on Saturday, September 24, and is expected to attract more than 1,000 family historians. Whether you are a new subscriber to Ancestry, an experienced genealogist, or just interested in finding out what genealogy is all about, this is the event for you!

Activities on September 23 will be held at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma and will include access to the museum and special presentations on outstanding genealogical resources in Washington.

On Saturday, September 24, Ancestry will take center stage at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center. They will be bringing their expertise, engaging speakers, door prizes, and Ancestry DNA kits to purchase.

There also will be vendors from around the state sharing their products and ideas.

Keep an eye out for upcoming registration information about this can't-miss event.

I have been updating my speaking calendar online, adding all the events and travel to my personal calendar, creating itineraries, and coordinating misc. bits and pieces to get ready for a busy speaking schedule ahead. I believe October and November will keep my head spinning with all the coming and going.

I've got a big favor to ask of you. In June 2011 I published a new upgrade to Cyndi's List. The upgrade made maintenance of the site much more stream-lined, which meant getting new and updated links out to all of you quicker. It also meant the site—always free for everyone to use—had a lot more flexibility for categorization of links, thus ensuring that you can find what you need when you research. As of today I am just $3,500 short of paying off the five-figure upgrade. To date 91% of that has been generously recovered from wonderful users of Cyndi's List through donations. I would love to be able to say it has been 100% covered by happy users of Cyndi's List. Can we make the final push before the 5-year anniversary of the upgrade?
