Last Book of Photo Memories for Family History Day 2011

Enjoy the last series of pictures taken at Family History Day.  Like the previous pictures posted, they truly capture the essence of the Day through the many examples of genealogical kindness.  Attendees received genealogical education in various forms - from speakers during and after classes to exhibitors in between classes. The photos of John Jay and Melinda Kashuba in their classrooms reflect scenes that were repeated throughout the day.  Verna Hazelbaker, directly below in period attire, was one of many representatives of genealogical, lineage and archival organizations who searched the internet for beginning genealogists. The juxtaposition of Ms. Hazelbaker in period attire using a computer was a phenomenal addition to the scenery!
Thank you to Charlene Eberwine, Lois Shumaker and Rick Hanson from Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society for providing some of these pictures.
