Bloggy the dog joined us a few minutes ago. You need to visit us at the Blog House to meet him.

Irene Winterburn and I have already met great people at the expo.
** We met a man who started researching his family after a visit to Nova Scotia and he has discovered over 13,000 ancestors since last October.
**More people blog this year than last. After Dear Myrtle's session this afternoon, those of us at the blog house will help attendees set up a blog.
**The big question from one of the attendees is: Can anyone read and translate Yiddish writing? And be willing to help a fellow genealogist who is willing to pay for services? Let me know if you can help.

For the user who needs Yiddish translation, I would contact either Schelly Talalay Dardashti at Tracing the Tribe: The Jewish Genealogy Blog ( or the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) (
