First of all - WOW!! 134 messages, and it is only the 8th of March!
So much to read - and all of it very interesting. Thanks.

Now - subject question: What genealogical or historical societies do
you belong to?
Since I live in Fairfax County, Virginia, I belong to the Fairfax
Genealogical Society - a very active group. (However, I think I am
the only member who researches in Mexico - ay, tan solita). Their
website is: http://www.fxgs.org
There were a lot of interesting items in the most recent newsletter -
and I thought I would share a few - especially if you should happen
to be in the area for any of these meetings/gatherings.
March 25, 2006: Fairfax Gen. Soc. Annual Conference (see website for
details).
April 27, 2006: (Monthly meeting) DNA Testing for Genealogists
(speaker: Linda Jonas) - check the website (above)for details.

Next year, 2007, the state of Virginia will celebrate in 500th
anniversary of settlement (Jamestown, 1607). NGS (National
Genealogical Society) will hold its Conference in the States, May 16-
19, 2007, in Richmond, VA. (www.ngsgenealogy.org)

That's all for now - y'all take care.

Natalie,
 
I too feel like the Lone Ranger up here in the Northwest.  I am the
only Mexican member of the Puget Sound Genealogical Society.  The other
members are mostly Scandinavian. Estoy tan solita tambien.  I do enjoy
hearing about their breakthoughs and successes, and I use their
library.  They take an annual trip to Mecca in Salt Lake City in
January (they have the whole place to themselves, almost, and don't have to wait
for computers or copiers, etc. then).  They have published some of my
articles in their Backtracker quarterly at www.rootsweb.com/~wapgsdgs/homepage.htm  about my
mother's New Mexico ancestors; I've written about them because I knew more about
them than of my father's Zacatecan ancestors.
