101 Reasons to attend #congress_2018 - Meet Shelley

Shelley, a young genealogist from Canberra who blogs at Twigs of Yore, will be attending her second Congress in 2018.

She blogged about her Congress plans this week. Shelley is a modest and intelligent young woman who has a background in statistics. She is a whizz with spreadsheets, databases and masssaging data who applies her skills to her genealogy research.

An expert user of Family Historian software Shelley has given me some valuable assistance in using that program. Check out her recent blog post Reconstituting the Allsops of Tissington–progress to get an indication of the depth of Shelley's knowledge.

At Congress you will have an opportunity to mix, mingle and pick the brains of many experienced genies like Shelley.

I've followed Shelley on social media for a while now, but we've not met in person yet. So it will be good to so do so at Congress.

Databases and spreadsheets - a day would not go by with out these. Love them. Is that sad? I'll be interested to hear how Shelly uses her S/S and DBs.

Hello, I'm curious to find out more about this conference. I'm based in London but I'm writing about my Australian family history (book two) and I would LOVE to attend #congress_2018. However no matter how hard I look I can't find out how much it costs. Can you help?

Thanks so much

Best regards

Patsy Trench

I just took a look at my Congress receipt. The earlybird rate for the conference was $475, the optional Welcome Function & Opening Ceremony was $45 and the optional Conference Dinner was $85.

I believe the Earlybird Rate will end after the first 300 registrations. I am not sure what the full conference rate will be after that allocation is filled. I do hope you can join us for the event. It would be wonderful to meet you in person, I am a fan of your blog.

Regards, Jill
