RootsTech 2015: Heading Home

Wow what a trip. In both senses of the word.

From the moment I got on the plane from Denver to now, sitting at the Salt Lake City Airpirt.   It has been virtually nostop Wikitree.   Awake at 6am, breakfast at the B&B, Wikitree, Wikitree, Wikitree, dinner with Wikitree, lights out at 10:30pm, Awake, Rinse repeat.

One nice change in the routine was meeting an old friend from my Explorer Scout days.  Jeff Heyman, now living in Salt Lake, contacted me for Dinner.  We had a great time at a place very much like the Texas Roadhouse in Colorado. So a great steak dinner and great converstation, then to bed and another day of Wikitree.

Jeff had a greeting card that I gave him when we graduated High School and he left to join the Air Force, we passed it back and forth between for a few years and then time and life separated us.  Facebook and mutual friends helped keep tabs but Jeff’s mom kept the card and after 20 years, we have it back in circulation.

It was with much Melancholly that I had to depart.  After the intital check in, I met many of the Wikitree leaders I have been communicating with at Wikitree, we came from all over the US and even one of the Wiktree Greeters join us.

It was easy to pick up the conversation and geek out on Genealogy, one of the reason I love Wikitree is that their are many members there that have a strong passion for well sourced, and well documented profiles and we all love to share what we can to help others.  You will not find a better group of Genealogy enthuiasts on the web.
