Atlanta Family History Expo

I’m seeking advice from those of you who have attended Family History Expos before.  Is it worth a 4 1/2 hour drive?

There is one in the Atlanta area next month and I’m trying to decide if I want to make the trip or not.

My husband has a 4-day weekend, so I have someone there to watch the kids.  I just don’t know if I want to drive quite that far by myself and miss spending the weekend with him.:)

Opinions anyone?  I would really love to go.  I just wish we lived a little closer. Do I just hold out for the NGS Conference in Charleston?  (Which I”m definitely going to!)

    I would say that it is definitely worth it! I drove to KC in July and loved every minute. It was especially fun to get to meet other geneabloggers – people I only “knew” from facebook/blogging.ReplyCancel

    Jen,

    I am employed by Family History Expos, so of course I must say “Yes!”

    However, I am going to take my Expo hat off and put on my genealogy blogger hat for my reply.

    One of the best parts of attending a genealogy event is meeting other bloggers, socializing and networking. Classes are great, but you can learn so much just from talking to others. And genealogy bloggers are just awesome. So friendly and fun.

    That being said, here’s a list of genealogy bloggers you will meet if you decide to go to the Atlanta Family History Expo:

    I know how hard it is to get childcare, and how hard it is to then leave your family. I’m doing both to attend this Expo.

    One last note: there will be a blogger area in the exhibit hall, so you can meet everyone there. Instant friends and no wandering around by yourself.

    If you do decide to go, let me know so I can put you on the list of bloggers attending. I’ll tell Geneabloggers, too.

    Hope to see you there!ReplyCancel
