The Ancestry Insider is an #FGS2013 Ambassador

The Ancestry Insider is an FGS 2013 ambassadorI have volunteered to be an ambassador for the 2013 annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. The conference is scheduled for 21-24 August 2013 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I knew I had to go to this conference the moment I saw the cover of the brochure:

The planet on the cover of the FGS 2013 conference brochure

Apparently, the mission of “the Federation” is “to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new lives and new generations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!”

Certainly, I’ve never been to Fort Wayne, Indiana or the famous Allen County Public Library. The Genealogy Center there is world class and I am looking forward to exploring it.

We are fast approaching the Early Bird Deadline on July 1st. Register in June to save $50 off a full conference registration. Visit the conference home page to learn more about the conference and the registration page to register.

The prime directive is to maximize your learning at the conference and at the ACPL library. Live long and prosper.


  1. Don't use that map to get to Fort Wayne!

  2. The map is reversed (W to E)! This is a silly mistake.
