I'm signed up....I even got my school system to give me professional days as I will attend the Librarian/TEACHER day (Thursday)!  More conferences should include teachers as part of the "Librarian" hook.  Many skills appropriate for genealogy can be transferred to the classroom setting....

I don't usually do promos for conferences, because I know what a hard call
is to spend the money and time away from home (and away from your favorite
repository!). But I will second Elissa's motion. During one week at SLIG I
heard 13 of Tom's lectures, and I would gladly hear them all again. (And if
saw some of my library work, he would agree that I need to!)

So I'm upset to see that my atlas has not changed -- Manchester is still
hard days' drive from snowy Indiana! If you want to be a better
and you live closer than me, be there.
