The above flyer from this Genealogical Society caught my eye, and I thought I would pass it on to all of you, because many of my customers and genie-buddies have Kentucky Roots. We attended this society's program last year and had a wonderful weekend stay in beautiful, peaceful sdrroundings. We are planning on attending this year if I can find a driver. I am actively looking for a driver who will drive my van from Indianapolis, IN at the shop to this location in some of the most beautiful surroundings it has ever been my pleasure to spend a weekend!
The State Park Lodge is lovely, made of stone and stained timbers. The huge fireplace just begs you to collapse in one of the comfy upholstered chairs that surround it and just relax and bask in the flickering flames and the ambience. The lodge looks much as if it had grown there, just nestled in the hill above the lake. The rooms are very spacious with two double beds and a full bath and are perfect for a family and very reasonably priced. The food, if it is anything like last year's, was incredibly good. I didn't lose a pound or an inch, but I really enjoyed all the good home cooking. I also enjoyed not fixing it and not cleaning up after it! They had a wonderful buffet breakfast on Saturday morning and a very tasty supper on Saturday evening which was also served buffet style in the restaurant which looks out over the lake. The daffodils, the redbud trees and, my favorite, the forsythias, were all trying to outbloom each other. The only sounds to be heard in the evening were the birds and the crickets doing their best to play a symphony and the coffee, and my jacket, kept the chill off the balcony that was a part of my room. I found a serenity there I always look for in my evenings. We met so many nice people, some I had met before and some new people who were a pleasure to add to my list of convention goers. We sold some books and I bought some books, and enjoyed so many aspects of the convention because we had all the ten tables we needed to create a lovely display which most people seemed to enjoy browsing for a book which would help them climb over those "brick walls" that seem to haunt this hobby! As a breakaway place from the winter doldrums it was absolutely perfect! As a beautiful welcome to spring and energy and getting it going again, it was the best I had ever tried.
If you know someone who would like to drive my big blue GMC van and me down there; help me unload the crazy crates and boxes and tubs of books, videos, charts, forms, maps, wall charts, magnabrites and even more books and mini-binders; help me set up the ten-table display area and then work at the tables on Friday evening. Then on Saturday, we just help people find what they need, sell it to them, put it in sacks, listen to the lectures (if you aren't interested in genealogy, you could take a walk around the park, or down to the lake, as long as you are there during the breaks.) Then you can help me pack back up when all the attendees are on their supper break, and drive me home to Indianapolis, IN again.
Interstate Highway most of the way down and back, free meals, Friday lunch and dinner and Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner with a free hotel room in the lodge on Friday night for you. All expenses paid by the shop plus a pay scale determined by the hours actually worked. Call Pat at if you are interested.

Thanks for taking the time to check out our crates.
We really appreciate those people who are willing to give our books a second chance to be helpful. Who knows? Maybe the one you have been looking for will be on this crate or the next crate. Blend this research with your census and courthouse research and see how your family puzzle can grow to be more complete!
