The following is an announcement from the Federation of Genealogical Societies:
The Federation of Genealogical Societies' annual conference will take place August 30 - September 2, 2006 in historic Boston, Massachusetts. The New England Historic Genealogical Society is serving as the local host for this event.
At the 2005 conference in Salt Lake City, a preliminary registration brochure was released to conference attendees. The brochure contains just a hint of what is shaping up to be the largest genealogy conference ever. The full registration brochure will be online at the FGS Website later this fall at http://www.FGS.org.
Family historians always seek additional news and details - it's second nature to us! The 2006 conference has provided a way for you to learn about the terrific opportunities that will be available: the expanded program; the speakers from across the United States, Canada, Ireland, England, and Scotland; the extensive exhibit hall; the many activities in and around Boston; and the plethora of research facilities in the area. Soon we will even tell you about special registration pricing for this conference.
