An American Home

A highlight of visiting any foreign country is being able to meet, chat and get to know the natives. Attending the Rootstech Conference in Salt Lake City has given Mr Geniaus and I and opportunity to meet US citizens from many states. That they share my passion for family history has been icing on the cake. The networking component of events such as Rootstech cannot be underrated.

Mexican Feast
An invitation to visit a home in a foreign place where one can interact with people and their friends in their own environment offers a great cultural opportunity. On Saturday night, with around fifty other bloggers and genealogy enthusiasts, Mr Geniaus and I experienced the hospitality of Janet Hovorka, the Chart Chick, and her husband in their family home around 40 minutes outside Salt Lake City. We were treated to a Mexican feast and some very pretty sweet delicacies.


Janet's local friends in genealogy provided transport for us to the venue. We thank Luana Darby who chauffeured  bloggers Thomas MacEntee, Lisa Alzo, myself and Mr Geniaus to and from the party. At the party we got to have some extended conversations with people we had met at the conference and some we had not managed to meet. This event afforded us all a perfect way to wind down after the hecticity of Rootstech.

Our thanks go out to the Hovorka Family for this fantastic evening.
