#FGS2014 #Ancestry.com Free Presentations

Ancestry.comI’ve seen people pay a couple dozen bucks to attend an “Ancestry Day” of sessions about Ancestry.com. If you’re in the San Antonio, Texas area this week, you may wish to come down to the convention center and attend their presentations for free. Ancestry.com is offering classes in its booth in the exhibit hall of the 2014 annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
