Some Thoughts from the Blog Master

Thank you for making the CGC NGS Chicago Blog a great success to date. We had our 2000th site visit today, with our visitors viewing over 5400 pages on the blog since we launched in January. Our visitors have been from all over the world, but mainly hail from the U.S. and Canada.
Please Read On!

I would like to take the time to thank our many contributors. With just over 10 weeks to go before the conference is held we certainly are not finished blogging! We will probably come up with at least 40-50 more articles to post in the coming 10 weeks. Blog articles come from members of the Chicagoland Genealogical Consortium publicity committee, host society members, speakers, vendors, and friends in genealogy.

I am not the only writer contributing to the blog. I want to thank all of the speakers, vendors, and CGC members who have supplied material for the blog to date. A special thanks to Kathy Brady-Blake, Teresa McMillin, David McDonald CG, Eric Basir, and Nancy Houston. Each of them deserves an extra effort award.

Keep in mind that you will not see all of the articles posted to date when you scroll down the blog's main page. Some have been archived. If you click each month's archive on the left side of the page, you will see links to all of the articles. We might revisit some of them as the conference approaches. I know that the public transportation trip planner piece will come in handy for many as we near the conference.

We will be adding local restaurant information, more spotlights on speakers, lectures, and vendors, and just plain good information. We want you to have a great conference experience and hope that these pages are helping you to plan your days at the conference.

As a final note, remember when registering that the CGC welcomes you to attend the CGC 's Local Host Event, Sweets Home Chicago. It will be a wonderful night filled with sweets, sounds, and friendship.

To future articles! Keep that information coming in!

Thanks to all,
Debbie Mieszala, CG
