Even though this is a "Those places Thursday" post, this Mariachi band was playing at Jamboree on Friday night for the welcome reception. Later in the evening there was added excitement as Elyse Doerflinger of Elyse's Genealogy Blog showed up after her graduation, earning her Associate Degree in Liberal Studies, and dinner with her family. Can you believe she wanted to be at Jamboree on the night of her graduation? That is a love and dedication for genealogy!
Here is Tami Glatz, from Relatively Curious about Genealogy, presenting an autographed book she has carried with her to different conferences to have signed by all. She did this for Elyse as graduation gift. Many top notch people and lecturers in the genealogy field have signed this book along with many GeneaBloggers. Below, you can see Elyse examining the book.
Here are a couple more pictures I took that shares a bit of the hoop la for Elyse. Below is Else with Drew Smith and George Morgan from The Genealogy Guys Podcast fame.
And... one final photo of A.C. Ivory, Find My Ancestor, and Elyse. Congratulations to you Elyse! Those of us at Jamboree truly felt your contagious excitement, and were so happy to be a part of it! Oh, to be young again!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
