been totally redone by Sheraton. The former City Center Mall is gone and in its place is a
beautiful park surrounded by little shops and eateries. We hope to take advantage of the 1 ½
block proximity of the Columbus Public Library. Attendees will benefit from free wifi and
parking for hotel guests.

Note: The dates for the event weren’t included in this announcement, but they are April 9-11.

I will be looking forward to this event, even as I put the finishing touches on my presentations on the program for the 2014 conference. Judy Russell is an entertaining lecturer. I have enjoyed — and learned from — all her lectures that I have attended. And I have found visiting her website to be worthwhile also.

BTW, my presentations at the 2014 OGS Conference are as follow: A two-hour workshop on “Rounding Up Records of Relatives in Ohio’s Western Reserve,” on Wednesday afternoon, and a lecture, “Searching for Your Scandanavian/Nordic Roots,” on Saturday morning at 10:15. Will I see you there?
