1 year ago, on this day ...

... we had a meeting with fellow genealogy researchers of the Csaladtortenet (Family History) mailing list in Budapest. It was so successful that the second meeting is taking shape now, with its day set to May 20, 2006. More on this later.

Some 3 dozen genealogists came together on April 30, 2006 to meet each other IRL. The event turned out to be an international one, as Barnabas B. and dr. Peter Nagy of Bratislava - Samorin joined us, as well.

We had a chance to stare at each others' printed or computerized genealogies, talk about research experiences and stuff. While it was not a really commercial event, Mr. Sandor Biszak of Arcanum accepted our invitation, and offered their products at half of list price, and to make it even better, every attendant got a Borovszky on CD-ROM as a gift from Sandor. Thanks!

I offered a special database for this occasion with records to be added to the RadixRef. Then I took some 2 dozen books from my collection - the sources for RadixRef - to the event so that fellows could take photos of relevant pages.

Well, this is a belated thank you for all those who made the meeting possible: Tibor V. (securing the venue), Istvan B. (designing the logo), the ladies (snacks and cookies!) and many for the photos: common ancestor found?, Janos greeting the high society, Doyen dr. Jeno F. conversing with Janos, with Sandor in the background, Gabor Cs. and Peter Nagy conversing ... and many more photos in the files section of the Csaladtortenet list - look for files dated early May 2005.
