Some details for those of you at the conferenceDon't forget to attend the Plenary Session at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday. The theme for this hour is "Visions of the Future from Keepers of the Past." This takes place in the Sheraton Boston Hotel in the Grand Ballroom. We are privileged to have two of those keepers of the past at that session, the Archivist of the United States, Dr. Alan Weinstein and the President and CEO of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, D. Brenton Simons. As if that isn't enough to draw you, this is the place to get additional conference information.

I peeked into an open door of the Hall today and saw a hotbed of activity. Booths being set up, computers being connected, books unpacked, CDs and DVDs being lined up, and oh, were my feet itching to get in there and browse.
