I Wish I Could Get To “Every” Conference

Me personally, I only make it to the west coast once a year for RootsTech… Next year I’m hoping to make it twice and in later years possibly more (fingers crossed). Unfortunately, one of the events only held on the west coast that I have to miss is the Jamboree hosted by the Southern California…
