This is a great opportunity to fine tune the book before publishing. It's a great opportunity to teach (which I love). And a wonderful opportunity to serve a friend. Plus I get to talk about Family History...
BUT I have a decision to make. Since I'm filling in for two classes, that's two I'm unable to take at the Conference. I was able to make an easy decision of what class not to take when I was only asked to teach the am session. However, I'm really stuck. The afternoon session has two classes that I don't know which to pick. They are both offer the same hour earlier in the morning. So, I have to chose only one. The first is Digging Through Brick Walls and the second is German Research. I'm really sure which one to pick. The conference will provide the notes for all the classes, whether you take them or not. I just don't learn well from notes. Soo.... my brick wall happens to be a German. Which do I go to?
My brick wall that I currently have in mind is a German named Joseph Geißler. I know that he lived in Columbus, Ohio in the 1840s. I think I know when he died and where he is buried. But prior to his appearance in a Census in 1860 and a land record in 1856, I don't know anything about him. He died in 1863. So.... he's my brick wall and he's German. Which class do I take?
