Leaving on a jet plane: Conferences, friends, family

Tracing the Tribe is now packing for its annual summer trip to the US.

The itinerary begins at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree in Burbank, June 26-28, where I will be a panelist for the second genealogy bloggers' summit and also cover the excellent conference program.

Some 35 geneabloggers will be attending - all of us plan to be twittering, tweeting and Facebooking around the clock. For many, it will be our first face-to-face encounter, making this event even more exciting. We're looking forward to meeting the "AncestryInsider" mystery man!

Several special blogger events are planned. Ancestry/TGN has invited us to a special breakfast on Family Tree Maker 10 and Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers.com has arranged a dinner.

According to Thomas, the geneabloggers will also have something special to wear for instant recognition.

I'm looking forward to seeing readers and colleagues at Jamboree, so don't be shy - do say hi!

Of course, Tracing the Tribe will also be blogging and tweeting from the 29th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Philadelphia, August 2-7. This is the blog's third anniversary - excuse me, blogoversary - and we all know that three blogging years equals many more human years! It will be exciting to celebrate this milestone at the 2009 event, as we went live at the New York 2006 edition.

Bracketed by these two major events, I'll also be in southern and northern California, New York and, hopefully, some other places as well, visiting family and friends ... and blogging!
