I applied to be an ambassador for the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) Conference but I’ve given up being accepted. Bummer. That won’t stop me from telling you about this great conference coming next week. I’m a big fan of the three national conferences. They draw from nation-wide and local experts. The conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas (remember the Alamo?) on 27-30 August 2014.
If you wish to register online, you need to do so today (18 August 2014) or tomorrow (19 August 2014). Register at http://www.fgsconference.org/registration. Pre-registrants will have online access to the syllabus before the conference. Pre-registrants also have a better shot at registering for extras before they sell out:
- 13 luncheons over the 4 conference days
- 10 workshops over 3 days
- Wednesday Night at the Institute of Texan Cultures on 27 August, hosted by the the San Antonio Genealogical and Historical Society and the Texas State Genealogical Society.
I know Friday evening’s “Night in Old San Antonio” at La Villita is already sold out. I don’t know about the others. If the Wednesday night activity doesn’t sell out beforehand, onsite registrants may still be able to purchase tickets.
I hope to see you there!
