Hail Halvor!

Plans are firm for events honoring retiring Family Chronicle editor and publisher Halvor Moorshead. The 2008 NGS Conference is tightly scheduled, and some events overlap, but it will be easy for everyone to participate in a "Halvor" event!

I had the honor of meeting Halvor at a workshop in Spokane. He was a charming, engaging, witty man who demonstrated that he is an intregal part of those of us who have a passion for genealogy and family history.

If you will be attending the NGS Conference set aside some time to honor a member of our community who has contributed so much! If you are unable to attend send your best wishes online.

1. MAKE A DINNER RESERVATION


RSVP to Myrt@DearMYRTLE.com by Sunday 5pm. They're taking reservations for a special dinner to be held on Thursday, 15 May 2008 at the Hyatt Regency Crown Center Peppercorn restaurant. On a budget? No problem, as each will order from the menu. Dress is business casual and we'll make a special presentation to Halvor at this dinner.

2. SIGN HALVOR'S GUEST BOOK

The book will be available for your comments at the GenealogyBank.com booth in the exhibit hall Wed-Fri.

3. POST A COMMENT at HONORING HALVOR http://honoringhalvor.blogspot.com
