We’re off to NGS!

It’s that time of year again where we pack up the Footnote booth and head out to the annual National Genealogical Society conference. This year the conference is being held in Kansas City, MO.

This is always a great opportunity for the Footnote team to rub shoulders with prominent figures in the genealogy world, friends from other genealogy companies, and best of all, the people that use Footnote. Every time we go to these events, we meet with great people that give us straight talk about Footnote.com; the good, the bad and the ugly.

In order to make sure we have time to listen to our members and potential members, we have reserved a room to hold a Footnote User Meeting. This meeting gives us a chance to talk about what is happening on Footnote and our future plans. We also welcome feedback, suggestions, needs, desires, whatever you want to say. Here is the information about these meetings:

When: Saturday, May 17 – 9:30am

Where: Pershing Room at the Hyatt Regency Crown Center

We invite anyone who would like to come and hope that we get a great turnout. Again, this is an opportunity to tell us what you like and what you don’t like about Footnote.com, what you would like to see on the site and anything else. If you are interested in attending, please email Elizabeth at elittle@footnote.com. If you can’t make it to this meeting, please stop by the booth and visit with us. We are in booth numbers #219 & 221.

  1. I AM A LISTENER OF THE GLENN BECK TV AND RADIO AND HEARD YOUR INTERVIEW AND WAS SO MOVED BY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH WONDERFULL THINGS IN MY HEART HOW I FEEL ABOUT OUR VETERANS AND OUR MEN AND WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO ARE SERVING NOW.I THANK GOD EVERYDAY TO BE LIVING IN THE GREATEST COUNTRY EVEN WITH OUR FLAWS WE ARE SO BLESSED AND I GET VERY ANGRY WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE HERE AND AROUND THE WORLD SAY EVIL THINGS ABOUT US. THEY CAN SAY WHAT THEY WANT ABOUT ME BUT YOU LEAVE OUR SOLDIERS AND THEIR FAMILIES ALONE BECAUSE BY THE GRACE OF GOD IF IT WEREN’T FOR OUR CREATOR AND THEM I DON’T KNOW WHERE WE WOULD BE TODAY.SO I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THE WALL AND READING THE STORIES BEHIND THE NAMES OF THE FALLEN WHO GAVE ALL SO I HAVE THE FREEDOMS I HAVE TODAY THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS TO ME AND WILL NEVER BE ABLE IN WORDS TO THANK THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES FOR THE SACRIFICE THEY MADE. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR COMPANY AND TO GLENN FOR BRINGING THIS TO HIS LISTENERS SO WE CAN GIVE OUR SUPPORT TO YOU AND OUR MILITARY.

    Sorry to hear about the problems you have had. I sent you an email message with a few questions to see if we can figure it out.
