RootsTech Media Dinner - Sneak Previews

At the Media Dinner tonight we were treated to time with tomorrow's keynote speaker, Paula Madison. Paula is the the subject of and executive producer for, Finding Samuel Lowe: From Harlem to China. She is also the author of the book, Finding Samuel Lowe.  She spoke to us about her search for her grandfather and a family reunion on another continent. She graciously signed her book, posed for pictures and answered questions after we watched the movie. Paula's story was riveting, emotional and heart warming. Her keynote tomorrow is sure to be excellent. If you are attending RootsTech from home, be sure to watch the livestream that begins at 8:30 am.

Also, tomorrow is the Freedman's Bureau Index-A-Thon. I'm sure you will hear more about it in the morning.
At tonights dinner I caught up with Thomas MacEntee, GeneaBloggers founder and one of the people who helped me get started with this blog several years ago.
