The Ides of March! Genealogists Beware…

I am writing this episode  on my new laptop!

Imagine…my own laptop at last functional!  So the Ides of March are working for me.

And…I logged onto the hotel wifi all by myself.

  1. I’m always too short to reach the keypad.  I need a  booster seat that I can carry with me.
  2. I spent the whole afternoon at the dentist–12:30 pm through 4:30 pm.  And I have learned the most incredible stuff:  He sent me to a special  lab where they take an ordinary porcelain, front-tooth crown; customize the tooth to fit my mouth; and then, hand-paint the tooth to match my other front teeth.  The last step in this creative, artistic process is to fire the new tooth in a kiln.
  3. Finally, my dentist installed the crown.  And it matches so perfectly–that you will never know I lost over half of my front tooth eating a soft, Subway sandwich–unless I tell you, that is.

So the Ides of March are working for me today.

On Thursday, 18 March, genealogists from all over the country will gather at the Masonic  Temple, 650 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake City UT for a special Family History Expos Immigration Conference.  What an event it is going to be. From 8:00 to 6:00.  All day how to trace immigrant ancestors.

Like my presentation:  “Immigration Sources Before Ellis Island.”  This is an all NEW session.  One of the very best I have put together–and of course I am biased.

Like Lorie Conway’s new documentary on the state-of-the-art hospital complex at the Immigrant reception center at Ellis Island.

Are You Coming?

Let the Ides of March work for you, too, today. Your favorite genealogist, Arlene  Eakle

PS  My new online store is live! Kathryn and I are very excited.  And you can order Afton’s new book on Tennessee Research online.  Publication date is shifted to about 25 March.  Afton has proofed the text and as soon as the changes have been made, I will deliver the manuscript to the printer.  Almost 150 pages in this

PPS  My New York blog launches 17 Mar 2010–at last specific help your hard-to-find ancestors who chose to cross New York, to settle in New York, to live their lives in a tough- to- search state.
