"Tip of the Iceberg" Poster Debuts at Jamboree!

Back in March I reported on an idea based on a conversation between CGS members Lisa Gorrell and Tim Cox that turned into a wonderful graphic designed by Lisa's daughter Elizabeth Gorrell.

The "Tip of the Iceberg" graphic went viral after it was picked up by Dick Eastman who quoted Lisa's wish:

What would be nice is to have a poster of it in every research facility – especially those with computers – to remind them that so little of their research will be found on the internet.

Thanks to the efforts of Tim Cox, Lisa's dream has become a reality and the "Tip of the Iceberg" poster will make its debut on Friday at the Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree.

Tim informs me that an 11 x 17 full color poster will be available at Jamboree for only $10, including taxes and a protective cardboard tube, at the California Genealogical Society and Library table #114. Tim, Carolyn Steinberg and I will be staffing the table with some other CGS members so please stop by and see us. And consider purchasing a poster to donate to your local public library!

I am going to get a poster this week end at the convention----very very cool graphics and a good reminder to all of us finding a name and date is just the start of the research.

How do we get a copy of that poster? I work at library and I think this is awesome. I heard about it at Jamboree but did not see it. SusiCP@aol.com or Cox.net

Please consider making the poster available by mail. I would love to have on for our research center.Some of us cannot make the trip to Oakland.
