FGS/RootsTech 2015: A Photo Recap; Day 4 (Part 1)

Clarification: This is day 4 of my trip; Day 3 of  FGS; Day 2 of RootsTech.
The pictures below were taken on Friday, 13 Feb 2015.

   Day 4 began with a free breakfast at the Radisson courtesy of FGS. Today’s keynote address was sponsored by Find My Past and included keynotes from D. Joshua Taylor, former First Lady Laura W. Bush and daughter, Jenna Bush Hager.I attended FGS classes exclusively again today, Friday the 13th! The day ended with a quick meeting Jen Baldwin of Find My Past concerning a generous membership offer to my society members. I went back to my room for a quiet dinner via room service so I could relax and catch up on email and social media.

I attended the following classes and events:

·        Friday General Session: D. Joshua Taylor, former First Lady Laura W. Bush, Jenna Bush Hager

·        Gentlemen Judges: The Justices of the Peace by Judy G. Russell

·        BCG Sponsored Lunch: What Did You Do When You Were A Kid? or Strategies for Gathering Family Stories by J. Mark Lowe

·        Fraternal Organizations: Records and Resources by Kris W. Rzepczynski
