I’m very excited! As I write this post, the FGS 2011 Conference is 50 days away. In a way, it seems a little far off, but when you’ve been working on the conference behind the scenes for over a year, 50 days is actually not too far away.
I look forward to my first national genealogy conference. There are many learning opportunities I am excited about, including:
- Overlooked War of 1812 Records in the National Archives, presented by Marie Varrelman Melchiori
- Going Beyond the Bare Bones: Reconstructing Your Ancestors’ Lives, presented by Thomas Jones
- Researching Your Indian War Ancestor Before the Civil War, presented by Craig Scott
- Avoiding Pitfalls in New England Research, presented by Rhonda McClure
- Land, Tax, and Court Records: Used Together Enhance Genealogical Data, presented by Wendy Bebout Elliott
- Michigan Roots: Genealogy Research in the Wolverine State, presented by Kris Rzepczynski
- The Genealogical Proof Standard: What It Is and What It Is Not, presented by Thomas Jones
There’s still plenty of time to register. Check out the FGS 2011 Conference website to learn more about the conference, sessions, presenters, special events, and register online.
Hope to see you there!
