On Saturday, September 24, 2011, the Fox Valley Genealogical Society will hosts its 18th annual fall conference in Naperville, Illinois. This year’s theme is “Building a Better Pedigree” and features the one and only, Christine Rose.
Ms. Rose will present the following lectures:
- Genealogical Proof Standard: Building a Solid Case
- Local Land Records in Depth
- Avoid the Crooked Path! Genealogical Problem Solving
- “Solving” the Problem Onsite in 25 Hours of Less!
The event will take place at Grace United Methodist Church, 300 E. Gartner Rd., Naperville. The cost is $35 for members ($40 for non-members) before September 9th, and includes breakfast and lunch. There will be door prizes, a silent auction, and quilt raffle.
Christine Rose is the author of some books I own, including Courthouse Research for Family Historians: Your Guide to Genealogical Treasures and Genealogical Proof Standard: Building a Solid Case. Although I am not a member of FVGS and do not live in the area, I am seriously contemplating attending this conference to hear Ms. Rose’s lectures.
