Countdown to Expo: My Agenda

The Atlanta Family History Expo is coming up this weekend.  I’ve spent hours poring over the agenda to determine the classes that I plan to attend.  Some of the decisions have been very difficult (and as you can see, I’m still trying to decide for some time slots).  I’m sure I’ll change my mind on a few sessions at the last minute.

    I’ll be there too! Hopefully we can meet while we’re there. You have me a little worried about the fact that you’ve spent “hours pouring over the agenda”… I haven’t even looked at it yet!!!! EEK! Guess I better get goin’ on it!

      Hi Joanne! I know from past experience that there will be multiple sessions at the same time that I want to attend, so I spend some time winnowing down my choices.

      I hope we get to meet!
