On the eve of Hurricane Irene, ten brave genealogists and genealogy bloggers met up informally in Londonderry, New Hampshire for fun and fellowship. No, not virtually on Facebook or Second Life, and not as a fleeting moment in the hallway at a conference, nor shouting across a banquet table at a luncheon. This was a very relaxed cookout, with lots of fun conversation and non-genealogy discussion. (Okay, so we discussed lots of family history, but no one is perfect!)
In spite of an ominous weather forecast, it was pleasant enough to sit outside, and the weather held off for everyone to get home safely afterwards. Except for Russ Worthington of the blog "Family Tree Maker User" who is on his way back to New Jersey as this is being written. Make it home safely, Russ and Patti!
