NGS 2016 Fort Lauderdale: Day 2

The day began with a meeting of the NextGen Genealogy Network at the Hilton hotel lobby. Today was the first full day of classes for me, totaling four 1-hour classes. I also attended the NYG&B sponsored luncheon with Elizabeth Shown Mills presenting her talk, “Lost Eyes, Whipping Posts, and Wife Swapping: Lessons from Yesteryear”. The day ended with a Florida State Genealogical Society event at the Hilton entitled, “Taste of Florida”, which coincided with Cinco de Mayo.
