September 16-17, 2011
The members attending on Saturday posed for a group picture after the business meeting, and we kept Dick with us (see computer in center of photo) for the occasion. Click on photo to see a larger version, which will open in a new window. Close that window to return to this page.
Photos below are by Carol Waid, Cynthia K. Chandler, and Claudia Chandler Brocato.

|Since Helen was unable to attend, members pitched in to welcome arrivals at the registration desk, with Linda Verges taking on many of Helen’s responsibilities. Thanks again, Linda!|
|Although members stayed busy researching on Friday, there was lots of laughter and hugging, especially when new connections were made.|
|Dick was busy most of Friday teleconferencing from British Columbia, Canada. He answered members’ questions about DNA, genealogy and the Lineages Database.|
|Although most members attended both days of the meeting, some members were able to attend only on Friday while others appeared on Saturday. All were warmly welcomed.|
|Some members made progress on their research, and there were a few surprises. A brick wall for one member was shattered when she met a member with a common ancestor. A member’s guest found a Chandler ancestor and joined the association!|
