Looking forward: 2014

Speaking out in 2014

So… let’s see here… The Legal Genealogist… a genealogist with a law degree… a graduate school educator…

In other words, I’m downright mouthy.

    Good gracious, woman, you have a busy schedule! Looking forward to seeing you in SLC!

  2. Ginny says:

    Good heavens, Judy. Are you going for platinum status with your favorite airline this year? ….or maybe trying to hit all 50 states in a year? Safe travels!

  3. Candace Gray says:

    What a great schedule!! Hope you are collecting frequent flyer miles. Thanks for posting your schedule. I will see you in March, when you are in my neighborhood of Fairfax, VA. Selfies?

  4. Jean says:

    Please come closer to Lancaster County, PA.

  5. Marilyn Riesbol says:

    Looking forward to your participation in the conference in San Luis Obispo in February. A large crowd is expected.


    BTW It is 75 degrees here in Santa Maria

    • Judy G. Russell says:

      Thanks, Marilyn! I’m looking forward to it, too — especially with the forecast for the next 48 hours!!!

  6. Laura says:

    Looks like you’ll be quite busy this year! SO excited to learn you’re visiting my neck of the woods in the fall. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you in Minnesota. :o )

    • Judy G. Russell says:

      Thanks, Laura, and I’m very much looking forward to the Minnesota trip myself! I’ve had the good fortune to meet a bunch of folks from the Minnesota Genealogical Society in my travels (at IGHR, for example) and can’t wait to see everyone again!

    Congratulations for winning the ABA “Niche” spot for legal blogs.

    The reality that DNA is a molecular machine, i.e., not alive like an organism, as well as the new scientific paradigm that cells are substantially comprised of various molecular machines, perhaps you are well positioned to remove some of the myths about DNA.

    • Judy G. Russell says:

      Thanks for the congratulations — and we’ll see in the long run whether I can even hold my own on some of the scientific stuff!
