Today was the 3rd day of the conference. It was also the day I did my first presentation. It was fun going to classes today, even though they were all southern states research classes that I went to. I certainly don't have any personal southern states stuff, except for maybe Texas. But who knows what I might learn that I can share with someone at sometime in my life. There was a lot of Afro-American stuff including a group that gave us all kinds of Afro-American information on a flash drive with their logo on it. Then there is always Jake's 2 adopted sisters, maybe there is helpful stuff on there for them.
Well, I had my first presentation and I got through it! Did have many that came up afterwards with questions and comments and many that I ran past in the halls and said it was a great lecture. I did have some projector problems though, and was really glad Mike, a friend from work was there to listen to my lecture and to come to the projector rescue. First I couldn't get it in the right position and then it wouldn't start and then it turned itself off and then....it posted a message on the screen that said, Do you want high altitude settings Yes or No. Click on yes or no... Hey I wasn't baking a cake! Thanks to Mike for saving my cake...and giving me the right altitude settings...sheesh! I guess we have to have a little humor with all the craziness in our lives, no? So despite the altitude difficulties, I got through it all, and I think no one thought to much of the altitude problems besides me...honestly, I like everything to be absolutely perfect.
After that was over, I had to change into my 1940 census indexing shirt for the 1940 shout-out at the exibitor area. FamilySearch announced the society indexer winners and a few other things of that sort and then there was a cupcake for everyone in attendance and a free 1940 T-shirt. And then it was time to finish for me and return to my room and recover. My feet hurt! Below a few shots from today's happenings.
