After morning tea the concurrent sessions began, with 4 different talks to choose from. First for me was Cora Num's talk "What can I find using eRecords". Unfortunately Cora was unwell and could not attend the Congress, but in true soldier on fashion she video recorded all her talks and they were shown on the big screens on the Royal Theatre - a big achievement and congratulations are well deserved by all involved. Then it was on to Paul Milner's "Buried treasure : what's in the English Parish Chest", lunch, Roger Kershaw's "Tracing free immigrants to Australia", Carole Riley's "Dropbox and Evernote for family historians", afternoon tea, and Heather Garnsey's "The Joint Copying Project" - and that was just Day 1!! A short walk back to my accommodations for tea and a good rummage though all the goodies in my Congress satchel, then off to sleep.
