The New England Genealogy Bloggers assembled in Farley, Massachusetts for another bash! We had a wonderful time and Sarah Campbell was again a terrific hostess. Her home was quite historical, and she led tours from the attic to the basement. Quite a few bloggers attended this year, along with some other local genealogists and historians that Sara had invited.
Besides eating and chatting (and chatting, and chatting, and more chatting), we heard a delightful tale from Shari Strahan about the genealogist Joe Manning and his genealogy projects on the child laborers seen in the famous photographs of Lewis Hine. It turns out that Joe’s genealogy mentor was Sara! It’s a long story and I'm so glad she put it into a blog post at this link: http://rememberingancestors.blogspot.com/2014/10/in-which-i-am-speechless.html . We also had a long discussion about NERGC 2015 in Providence, Rhode Island (Midge smuggled in an early copy of the schedule and conference brochure). No keynote speakers at NERGC 2015? Hmmmm….
The fall foliage was spectacular, there was a little rain but it didn’t dampen spirits, and a pumpkin took a nose dive off Sara’s front porch… In other words, we had a terrific time!
