I've looked at all the messages regarding the SoCal meeting - but
haven't found information regarding the proceedings of the meeting
(except for the wonderful lunch the rest of us missed; excuse me for
drooling). What was the agenda? What things were discussed? Could
someone please share some insights into what went on in the meeting,
what you got out of it, and if you will schedule another. Thanks for
sharing.

Hi Natalie,
You'll probably hear more from others who attended, but I'll give you my take on the meeting.  Unfortunately, I was still busy in the kitchen when people started to arrive so I wasn't able to hear what everybody had to say.  I do know that as each person arrived, they were instantly involved in a "what's your family line" conversation. 

We followed a rather loose agenda.  At the start the focus was more on meeting each other and getting somewhat familiar with the specific areas we each are researching.  Everyone brought records and some books, so a lot of the time was used matching up similar ancestors.  Rosalinda was of tremendous help because she is very familiar with various methods of researching online, as well as some methods/techniques used at the various research centers, i.e., NARA, Family History Centers, local libraries.  Some who had communicated online, continued discussions previously started, but which now
were helped along by being able to share information in person.  Rosalinda and a few others brought along some of the books that provide historical information as well as  records information - Ronnie Reynoso had a copy of Jose Luis' book on Nochistlan, Zac, and Rosalinda (if I remember correctly) had  a book on marriage dispensations as well as other items she shared with the group.  Rosalinda also handed out a sheet on which was printed quite a few beneficial web sites.  

People started arriving exactly at 11:30 and the last person left at about 4:00 p.m.  Almost the entire time was spent in discussion.  Lunch was served about 1:30, but even then my husband had to kinda bully people away from their conversations and to the meal.

Natalie, What Olivia said is basically it for me...while I didn't really get to share my line because I was too enthralled by other conversations....I did learn valuable researching techniques from Rosalinda (she provided a sheet, both sides, with websites she goes to in search of info) and I met lots of great people and, yes, ate some awesome food. I feel lucky to have met these awesome people...   Peggy
