Thanks to the CNYGS
Just wanted to send out a big “thank you” to the Central New York Genealogical Society who hosted me today as the speaker for their May meeting. I enjoyed meeting everyone and talking about Eastern European Research and Immigrant Cluster Communities.
A special thanks to the nice lady who paid me a compliment. During my second talk, I showed a photo I posted on this blog before taken when I was nine when my grandmother made me wear a cloth with sauerkraut around my neck – a Slovak home remedy for the mumps! I don’t want to name names, but this lady said, “You haven’t changed a bit since that photograph – you still look the same!” I replied, “Bless You.” That made my day!
My presentations and handouts will be available on the CNYGS web site in about 2 weeks.
