FTDNA Conference November 4-6, 2011 Houston

Serendiptious Genetic Genealogy DNA MatchGenetic Genealogy (DNA for genealogy) is one of my interests.  I’m off to the FTDNA project administrators’ conference this weekend (November 4 to 6, 2011)  in Houston, Texas.   The speaker line up looks great.

On Sunday night I’m heading out to dinner with two of my Houston based geneablogger friends, Amy Coffin of the WeTree Blog and Caroline Pointer of the Family Stories blog.  I’m really looking forward to seeing them again AND maybe I’ll even get to meet the #railfan 🙂
