Jamboree 2010 ~ A Smiling Saturday ~ Post #5

Saturday started out with a very nice breakfast right there at the Marriot Hotel with Gini Webb-Ginisology and her husband Steve, Elyse-Elyse's Genealogy Blog, and A.C. Ivory-Find My Ancestor. Elyse finished eating and took off to the Blogger Summit as she was on the panel. When the rest of us were finished we headed on over to where the summit was to be held, along with many other GeneaBloggers. Below is what was displayed on the screen~

Here we see each of the panelists for the first session. Thomas MacEntee-Destination Austin FamilyGeneaBloggers, Steve Danko-Steve's Genealogy Blog, Elyse Doerflinger-Elyse's Genealogy Blog, Miriam Midkiff-AnceStories, and Randy Seaver-GeneaMusings (a distant cousin of mine as he is with many others).

I love the look Elyse is giving here. Of course, they were all posing for cameras that were set up in another direction than I was, so the panel was all looking the other way. All that is except for Elyse. Not sure what grabbed her attention, but I got the shot!

Below, is none other than our very own footnote Maven [she is another "cousin"  but we haven't found any real connections, if you can imagine that... :-) ], Shades of the Departed-Shades the Magazine. I thought this was an apropos photo of fM, please notice her magnificent crown! I have to admit, the crown is most beautiful when viewed from the front though. A lot of people in the audience were taking pictures, maybe I will share more of the pictures I took of them at another time.

In between Blogger Summit Session One and Blogger Summit Session Two, the GeneaBloggers were gathered to have a picture taken to show how many of us were in the room. Gini's-Ginisology husband Steve took these next two photos for me with my camera. Unfortunately for him, I had the wrong lens on the camera for this photo. The poor guy kept backing up and backing took two pictures to capture us all.

Thanks Steve for taking these pictures for me!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharing Steve Danko's Story!

Steve is a fellow GeneaBlogger and a personal friend of mine. He has been having quite an issue with Facebook, due to no fault of his own. Now, I tell you, if you know me at all, you know any friend of mine isn't out looking for trouble, right???? Steve is a wonderful person and DOES NOT deserve what he had been going through!

He wrote a marvelous story that I would like to share with you. Here is the link to "The Two Kingdoms (A Cautionary Tale). " Please read this wonderful, fantastically written story and find out what has been going on!

Today, I received an invite to join over on Facebook a new group that was formed to support Steve and the efforts needed to rectify this mess. The group is called "Friends of Steve Danko For Facebook Account and Blog Restoral." If you have a Facebook account please, please join this group!

Steve, we are all supporting you here and hoping this mess gets rectified very soon. Facebook owes you the biggest apology and more.

Thanks for stopping by!

Heritage Happens Received the Kreativ Blogger Award!

I leave for a couple of weeks and come home to find I have been presented with an award! What a wonderful surprise! I have received the Kreativ Blogger Award not once, but twice while I was away! I wish to thank Deez from Cemetery Explorers and Gini from Ginisology for being so gracious to honor my blog! I am humbled, surprised and very thankful to you both! I am trying to think what I have done to be "Kreativ" as of late. I believe my posts "Those Places Thursday" would have to be at the top of this category. Although I have been away and today is Thursay, I will be getting back to those posts very soon!

Upon receiving this award, I am suppose to list seven things about myself, so here goes!

1. I absolutely LOVE being "creative" with many things when I have the time.
2. I can't carry a tune.
3. I absolutely detest oysters and clams.
4. I really don't watch TV, but I understand there may be some new genealogy shows up and coming, in that case, I will have to watch!
5. My ambitions are more than I will ever obtain in my lifetime.
6. I like to go to the movie theater once in awhile.
7. I have so much reading to catch up on, good thing I love to read.

Now I am suppose to choose seven blogs to pass this award on to. I think I am a bit late in responding to this, so let me see if I can find seven blogs who haven't yet received this award.
All seven have probably received this award already, congrats if you have!

Thanks for stopping by!

Steve Danko's Radio Interview

Steve Danko and I have taken some online courses together and I have met him once. Today he was interviewed on KUSF 90.3FM, in San Francisco. He was interviewed by Zbyszek Stanczyk who is the host of Studio Poland, this particular radio station. I had the pleasure of listening to his interview.

They spoke of Polish genealogy and Steve's blog, Steve's Genealogy Blog. Beginning genealogy was discussed for the newbies as well as information on Polish specific research. The interview was reminiscent of information that I have been previously privy to regarding his research in the past few years. It reminded me of some of the photos he has shared with our class group.

I understand that 2:00pm pacific standard time when the interview posted, was unfortunately the only time we would have been able to hear this. That is just for this interview though. Watch for more from Steve!

The interview was very interesting and informative. If you have Polish ancestry, and even if you don't (I don't), be sure to check out Steve's blog. He lists his research and family information. Steve participates in carnivals and updates local genealogy events in the Bay Area. As with many other blogs, there is always something you can learn!

I just wanted to say congratulation's to my friend Steve! It was a great interview! Thanks so much for letting us know about this so we could listen! Looking for so much more from you! And, as I told you elsewhere, you have a great radio voice!

Thanks for stopping by!

Guest Blog Article From Barbara Poole-Backup Methods

An online friend I have from a genealogy class and ongoing group site we share, informed me she had some additional information regarding Back Ups. I asked her if she would like to prepare something that I could post on my blog, which she has agreed to do. Some of you may remember seeing other guest posts from her on Steve's Genealogy Blog. I welcome and thank Barbara Poole as a guest poster to my blog! Please read her article below!

"On Tuesday, January 6, 2009, Msteri wrote an article about Back Up Methods. This is in reply to her column. There were a number of comments about the topic, and I thought some of the readers might be interested in learning that the January 2009 issue of Smart Computing has a rather large section on backing up your data.

If you are interested in reading about back ups from this magazine, I suggest you check it out at a newsstand, library or subscribe to it. The link for this magazine is Two days ago, when I began this article, the January issue showed, but now it is the February issue. The chapter Did You Really Back Up has the following articles: Backup 101 Prevent A Data Disaster; Backup Media Make Your Data Impervious To Crashes; Backup Software Automatically Archive Your Data; Online Backup Options Services For Safeguarding Important Data; Vista Backup & Restore Center Set It & Forget It and Recovery Software & Services Lost, But Not Gone Forever.

I have been subscribing to this publication for about 16 years, back when the title was PC Novice…so glad they changed the title to Smart Computing (nobody wants to be a novice for 16 years!) In my opinion, it is a top notch publication with very little advertising. There are a lot of great glossy pictures, many topics that range from fixing problems, wireless networks, new products & reviews, Q & A, software lessons (Word, Adobe, Excel, Browsers, etc., all with clear instructions), and many more subjects. I think everybody would benefit from at least checking it out, there is something for everybody. They often give genealogy software reviews as well. For the bloggers, there is an article Use Word As A Blog Composer. In addition, there is free computer support, full access to their sister publications and other benefits."

Barbara has informed me of this magazine before, and for some reason I had forgotten about it. I will make sure to check into it this time! Thank you so much for sharing this information with us Barbara! I am sure it will be a great help to many genealogists and bloggers, a real benefit to us all!

Thanks for stopping by!
