  1. Hi Danni – I know you will be presenting at the National Genealogical Society 2019 Family History Conference in St. Charles, MO this coming May. I am not able to attend the conference as I live in California but am wondering if I might be able to obtain a copy of your Syllabus for “Boomer Sooner! the Run for Land in Oklahoma?” I lived in Oklahoma for 30 years and my ex-husband is a native. I have been doing genealogy since my children were little – at the State Library in OKC – and am now a grandmother. The Run is a very interesting subject and I know a bit about the history.

    Thank you for considering my request. Looking forward to hearing from you
