Today, listing everyone I saw would take far too long, and would be impossible. Of interest, I saw Michael Goldstein, the President of IAJGS. Sneaking in to the vendor room, I spoke with Gary Mokotoff and Laurence Harris. At registration, I spoke with Kahlile Mehr, a UJGS member and IAJGS Board member. After registration, Daniel Horowitz gave me the condensed version of his MyHeritage lecture, because it’s in the description for the computer lab I have to teach in the morning. It’s good that I asked him, because we discovered that I probably can’t install the software to demonstrate the search, but he showed me a shortcut I can use.
I looked through the family finder, which I often put off until after the conference. This year, I finally remembered to look through it early and discovered that I’m not listed as a registrant and one of my surnames is misspelled everywhere. Can’t do anything about it now.
Before all that, I spent some time at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. I like that the person helping Elise and I reviewed everything quickly, not assuming we’re morons like you often get, but it was so fast and she showed us so much, we were quickly overwhelmed. I’ll have to go back after the conference.
It’s after midnight here and I have a computer lab to teach early in the morning, so my blogging is getting cut short. Besides, I can’t think of anything else to say.
