FGS/NEHGS 2006 Birthplace of American Genealogy

If you are looking for something to do over the Labor Day Weekend and feel like taking a road trip to Boston, MA, the Federation of Genealogical Societies is holding its 2006 conference there August 30-September 2nd. Registrations are still being accepted at the door. See the FGS Web site for details.

Here’s the basic description of the conference from the FGS Web site:

Each year the Federation of Genealogical Societies holds a conference for the nation's genealogists. Join the Federation of Genealogical Societies and the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston August 30 - September 2, 2006 for the largest genealogical conference ever held. Speakers from the United States, Canada, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and England will be providing educational opportunities for genealogists of all levels - from beginner to professional. With 350 information-packed sessions spread over the course of four days, you are sure to find the perfect techniques and practices for your research. Hundreds of exhibition booths will cram into two exhibit halls to demonstrate the latest products and services. And members of the Association of Professional Genealogists will donate their services to provide free consultations to all attendees. Please join us for this historic occasion in the Birthplace of American Genealogy. This conference and all of its sessions are open to everyone. Membership in a genealogical society is not required.

Unfortunately, I will not be a speaker at this conference, and do to another commitment am not able to be an attendee either. If you’re like me, and can’t make it this year, you you can keep up with all of the conference happenings by checking the FGS Conference Blog on the Conference page.
