Jeni and I have had a wonderful day, meeting interesting people and catching up with those we know. Our table was between Joy and Allan Murrin and Laurie and Lorraine Turtle, both are transcription agents and enjoyed talking to them. Joy watched the video if my TV spot.

Gail, from NSW State Records, Cassie Mercer, from Inside History, Teapot Genealogy, Fellowship of First Fleeters and Carol Baxter, author were just some of the people I caught up with.

We had some nibbles but people are under the impression that we only deal with families from Bankstown. Might have to write a piece for the Torch newspaper and Australian Family Tree Connections, to see if we can change that. Our handouts and chocolates went down well!

Tired but it was a good day. Plans for doing our own next year have been discussed on the drive home.

Bye for now,
Lilian.

Joy and Allan's table. They had jelly beans to share in tiny little packets. Yum!

This was on one of the slides that were playing. I would love to know who wrote it and where it came from.

This is going to be very useful.
