Off to Kelowna for a Genealogy Conference

Our suitcases are ready, the car is fueled up, and my iPad and cell phone are charged.
My husband and I leave tomorrow morning for three days for the “Harvest Your Family Tree 2014 Genealogical Conference & Marketplace” hosted by the Kelowna & District Genealogical Society. The conference takes places this weekend, September 26 to 28, in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.
It's going to be an exciting weekend, being with other genealogists and learning about topics ranging from Eastern European genealogy, to coroner's records, to Canadians in World War I, to how to think outside outside the box for brick walls.
I had pre-booked a personal consultation with photo detective Maureen Taylor (she was going to be available for a few hours on Friday afternoon, plus give lectures on Saturday), but unfortunately, she had to cancel her appearance in Kelowna because of illness in her family. However, she's very generously offering to still do consultations (for example, by phone, Skype, etc...), or get a refund, if we prefer. (I'm going to book a phone chat, so, thank you, Maureen, for this long-distance option!)
For more information about this great conference weekend, see the Kelowna & District Genealogical Society.
