FGS Lectures to Order on CD

This week I wish I was at the national Federation of Genealogical Societies conference in Springfield, Illinois. Many of my genealogy friends are there along with some of the best genealogical speakers in the country. I made my "wish list" of lectures to order on CD (which I do for every national conference). For this conference there is a new company recording the lectures,  Fleetwood Onsite Conference Recording, Inc. According to Dick Eastman's blog the recordings will be available for download as well as on CD and can be ordered at once the Fleetwood employees return home from the conference. 

Here are my picks for the sessions I wish I could have attended and may order on CD. For those attended the FGS conference I would love to know what you thought of these presentations, and also what presentations were your favorites.
