Monday Musings

Happy Monday!   It was a great weekend!  We spent this past Friday & Saturday at the Michigan State Archives enjoying their summer two day conference.

As always there were many great speakers to enjoy, covering a wide range of topics.

I spent some time on Friday at the Michigan State Library gathering some newspaper items off microfilm from their great newspaper collection. 

The lock-in on Friday was a first for the Archives, but we had a full house and the staff was awesome!  We did manage to get a prison record for one person in our data base who we knew did some time in the "big house"!  Great seeing the alias' that he used as well as confirming what family lore had said. 

Ended the two day trip late Saturday afternoon with dinner out with some good friends.  All in all a very productive two days!

How was your weekend?
