SLIG 2016: A Photo Recap; Day 4

Today was another full day of classes. During breaks I would head over to SLIG Central where I could socialize and have some coffee. Maia’s books had an impressive array of genealogical and historical books on display for purchase, which they shipped free for you! How could you beat that! So, I bought $130 worth of books… LOL.

 At the end of the day, I took the lavish bus (Thanks, SLIG!) over to the Family History Library to do some squirrel hunting. Everywhere I looked were top genealogists I admire, mostly socializing, but a few were hard at work… Ha! I decided to research some US county books, so I went to that floor and to the Texas aisle to look through Upshur, Bastrop, Crosby, and Galveston counties. My friends, Amy Urman and Leslie Carney, just happened to be sitting next to me. Surprisingly, we didn’t really talk, we were so busy skimming the pages of our books and making copies onto flash drives. Today was quite productive indeed.

The few, but very important choices to make

The United States books floor is my favorite!


Crosby County, Texas is where my maternal grandparents lived



I even found a few books written by my course coordinator!

Back to the Hilton

My home away from home





The weather wasn't too bad since I was in most of the time
