Thank you and Acknowledgement

The Family History Day 2012 Planning Committee included Carolee Jones, Denise Richmond, Lois Shumaker and Denise Miller (pictured above left to right).  Not pictured, Judy Willey.  All are members of Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society.

The Committee would like to thank the Root Cellar members who arranged the three Sacramento area public library displays: Charlene Eberwine, Suzanne and Maria Latimer, Diane Maltase with coordination by Carolee Jones.

Volunteers were the backbone of this event and we sincerely appreciate the Root Cellar members who took time away from classes to help at various volunteer stations: Diane Alaskin, Vicki Contente, Lois Dove, Nancy Fiorini, John Jay, Suzanne Latimer,  Diane Maltase, and my non-genealogy friend Ruben Gonzalez.

We also gratefully acknowledge the many State Archives staff who volunteered their time to assist attendees, exhibitors and speakers to ensure the day ran smoothly.

It was my personal honor to work with State Archivist Nancy Lenoil and her staff, archivists Stephanie Hamashin, Linda Johnson and Sebastian Nelson in planning this event throughout the past year.  Their dedication to and support of this annual genealogy extravaganza has been steadfast and was sincerely appreciated.

Thank you also to the many speakers who shared their expertise on a variety of genealogy topics and the organizations who showcased their programs and services to attendees and other exhibitors.

And to you, the attendees, thank you for coming. Family History Day is for you,
especially if you are just beginning your journey toward your ancestral roots.
We hope your "inner-detective" was unleashed with all the new research techniques and resources you learned to enhance your quest.

Make a note - next year Family History Day will be on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  See you then....

P.S.  This blog will be dark for awhile but will return with news of the next Family History Day.  Please remain subscribed to the blog and encourage your family and friends to do the same as this blog will be the place for all news related to next year's event.
