Yes, I was a first timer as well. I was only able to attend Sunday and Monday 
but in that time gained much valuable information. I was also able to meet up 
with one DNA relative and met another probable distant cousin from the same 
area of Galicia with a common surname.
Thank you for all the work you do! It was an amazing conference.
