How Popular is #Genealogy in Springfield, IL?

How popular is genealogy in Springfield, IL? Popular enough that the local T.V. channels came by for a press conference yesterday morning. Here is a video of D. Joshua Taylor announcing the opening of the Federation of Genealogical Societies' 2011 Conference:




Cool, yes? [Yeah. I remembered I could shoot video on my iPhone. Watch out world.]


And? I was also mentioned in the local paper. That's right. The hotel that I'm staying in had recently renovated their rooms. And the local paper interviewed guests to see how we liked it. Here's a link to the online version of the article: http://www.sj-r.com/business/x219207891/President-Lincoln-Hotel-seeks-that-wow-effect

And? For you numbers people: over 2000 attendees representing 48 states and 5 countries.

So, how popular is genealogy in Springfield, IL? Very popular.
