AAHGS 2015

This week the 36th National Conference of the Afro American Historical and Genealogical Society (AAHGS) will convene in Richmond, VA.

This will be my second time attending the National Conference and I’m looking forward to reconnecting with some of my genealogy buds.

While in Richmond, I also hope to get some research done as well as hopefully meet some newly discovered relatives, descendants of my great grand Aunt, who live in Richmond.

As usual, I will be bringing my trusty side-kick, that would be mom, with me. Mom’s been having some issues of late, but I think it would do her a world of good to get away for a few days. Plus, she seems to enjoy these activities as much as I do, especially when she becomes engaged in a conversation with someone and can reminisce about her childhood days.

While at the Conference, I hope to do a bit of blogging and post some pictures, so be on the lookout for those.

Hopefully, by the end of the convention, provided life settles down, I’ll get re-energized to return to the hunt for the ancestors.
