When conference blogs go good

Blogs designed to promote an institution or an event tend to lack character IMHO. So I'm especially happy to report that the NGS conference blog for their big Kansas City event May 14-17 just posted more than a dozen crackerjack ideas, locations, and links for conducting Kansas and Missouri research nearby.

I have my eyes on Swiss immigrant David Joss in Buchanan County, Missouri (my gg grandfather's brother) and Stephen Cooper in "Bleeding Kansas" (my great-grandfather's first cousin). And there are others. But frankly the conference itself looks so full of learning opportunities that I don't know when I'll find time or energy to hit the repositories. Which courthouses will be open 24-7 that week?
