Two Genea-Bloggers Met in Surrey BC Today!

Today two genea-bloggers met at the BC Genealogical Society's Walter Draycott Library in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. Serendipity! What fun!

Sue Dombrowski and her mum came along today to have a good look at the Library's collections. Luckily I happened to be right there when they arrived.

Here's the proof for our on-line friends at Genea-Bloggers and at Scrapaholics! (Wish we'd had some Mardi Gras beads handy though. Next time...)

Sue and I met on-line through the Scrapaholics scrapbooking Meetup group and this May, Sue started blogging at Scrap Your Roots. I wrote an article then about her and her blog. Both Sue and I are members of the Genea-Bloggers group and we read each other's blogs regularly.

I was very glad to meet Sue's mother too as she was the family genealogist till she got Sue interested in family history.

Sue's been participating in an on-line scrapbooking workshop - 'The Challenge of Me'. This does sound like something many of us should do. Have a look at her blog to read how Sue's doing with that project.

Sue's also started her own business developing family heritage scrapbooking kits. Great idea! Beginners will love these and they will be a good 'jump start' sometimes too for scrapbooking people like me - long on ideas and short on time.

This is great! I love hearing when geneabloggers can actually meet! It sounds like you all had a great day - one day I am hoping our paths cross, perhaps at a conference soon!

I hope so, Thomas. I am already saving up for the Jamboree!
