I had the opportunity to attend the New England Regional Genealogical Conference from April 7th to April 10th in Springfield, Massachusetts. This was the first time I had attended this conference. The people were great and the atmosphere very relaxed. There was a good selection of speakers, lecture topics and a large marketplace.
Most of my time was spent in the marketplace as I was helping Louise St. Denis at the National Institute for Genealogical Studies booths. Sharon Murphy and Lynn Martel were also assisting Louise. While working at the booth I met Henry Worthington a reader of this blog. It is was great to meet someone who follows “The Passionate Genealogist.”
While there I got the chance to visit the Museum Quadrangle in Springfield. I had heard there was a sculpture garden with characters from Dr. Seuss and then found the four museums. What a treasure hidden in Springfield.
If you have never been to NERGC then I would suggest you think about attending their next conference in 2013 to be held in Manchester, New Hampshire.
