GRIP 2019: Days 2-5

The second day of GRIP for me and the last day of kindergarten for my little man. How could I not use this photo for today's post?

GRIP went quickly as always. I learned so much from Judy Russell, LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson, and Rick Sayer on how to use laws to advance your research. So much so, in fact, that I need to go back to see what I've missed. We discussed probate records, immigration records, land records, and records during slavery.

I also attended 2 of the night lectures, one by LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson on Transcriptions and one by David Rencher. As always, I spent plenty of time at Maia's Books and looking through the BCG portfolios.

My favorite part was talking with the other attendees at meals and breaks, after classes ended, and on the trip home. I can't wait to attend again next year!
