George and Drew return from the annual conference of the National Genealogical Society. Roots in the Boot (an upcoming mid-July Italian Genealogy and Heritage Conference in Pittsburgh) is announced (www.rootsintheboot.org). Reading the mailbag, George and Drew clarify some issues relating to ProQuest's HeritageQuest Online product (as it relates to remote access for genealogical and historical societies), bring up concerns about the closing of the Sullivan County (NY) Historical Society/Museum, and discuss affidavits as they relate to birth and marriage certificates. Podcast listeners will find out if Drew was successful in completing his 5-item to-do list for the NGS conference. George talks about the vendors (especially the ones selling books).
