It’s hard to believe that the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2013 Conference is just a little over a month away. I can’t wait! This is my one conference for the year and I’m looking forward to some wonderful educational opportunities, researching at the Allen County Public Library, and getting together with my colleagues and friends (and hopefully meet some new ones!)
Below is some information I received today from the FGS conference chairs that I thought I’d pass along to my readers.
This is a special genealogy conference you won't want to miss!
It's getting closer! The 2013 FGS conference takes place in Fort Wayne, Indiana on August 21-24 with pre-conference activities on August 20th and a Farewell Brunch on August 25th. Fort Wayne is the home of the renowned Genealogy Center which is giving us generous extended research hours during the conference.
- Of course, you may still register online or by regular mail for the FGS 2013 Conference in Fort Wayne!
- Register soon so that in early August you gain access to the online conference syllabus with an expanded subject index.
- We tweaked room arrangements and have ample room for more people to sign up for the luncheons that take place each day.
- Rooms are available at the two added hotels. They will run periodic shuttles to the Grand Wayne Convention Center. Fort Wayne has thousands of hotel rooms so there is space for all of us.
- Ample parking is available near the convention center.
- Don't forget about the wonderful quilt that will be awarded during the Friday evening festivities at the Allen County Public Library. That's an evening to benefit the War of 1812 Preserve the Pensions Project with lots of fun activities. A dessert buffet will be sponsored by FamilySearch. If you have registered for that evening, you get access to the Genealogy Center from 6:00 p.m. till Midnight!
