NGS Conference Highlights: Part 1 of a Hundred or So

For me, the zenith of the conference came in the middle of "A Celebration of Family History" Gosh, I have so much to tell you. Oh, by the way: hello, I’m back. After two weeks of nose to the grindstone preparing for the conference, I’m going to have time to write again.

The 2010 NGS Conference was everything I hoped it would be and more! There were differences from my expectations, to be sure. I attended fewer classes and spent more time in the exhibits. And the banquets and luncheons proved to be very nearly, for me, the highlight of the conference.

But the zenith of the four day conference for me coincided with its midpoint. Between days 2 and 3, Thursday evening, my wife and I attended A Celebration of Family History. To understand why a musical number by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the middle of the program was the highlight, rather than the finale, I have to give you some background.

Sorry; my wife says it’s time for bed. I’ll continue tomorrow. Can’t wait? Watch this video:
