52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 46

Week 46: Large Genealogy Vendors. Which big genealogy vendor is your favorite one to see at conferences? What does this vendor offer the genealogy community? Why do you like visiting this vendor in the exhibit hall?

I like them all.  The exhibit hall is my favorite part of conferences.  I honestly really don't buy much, but I certainly look around and ask a lot of questions.  My favorites are those that have drawings, neat giveaway items and something hands-on to do while you visit their booth.  That would include, I think, all of those meant by "big genealogy vendor" in this prompt.  FamilySearch.  Ancestry.  FindMyPast.  Those three are the ones I think of first.  I like the fact that they have people present to answer questions and perhaps show you a new trick or two.

But, then, the smaller vendors - the booksellers, the software vendors - can be very helpful if you have questions about their products.  There are very few booths I pass by - the exhibit hall is just plain fun!
