The following announcement was written by the Federation of Genealogical Societies:
The next FGS Conference will take place from September 3-6, 2008 in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
This four day "Footprints of Family History" educational conference honors the host city as the place where the ancestors of millions of Americans first set foot on the continent. Family historians like to keep up with additional news and details about the annual FGS Conferences. The 2008 conference committee has a blog to provide that.
It is easy to join in on the knowledge – just go to www.FGS.org, click on Conferences, then on 2008 Conference, and on that page click on Blog. Direct access to the blog can be reached via http://www.fgsconference.org/blog/index.php.
Check back often to see the frequent news, updates, program announcements, vendor details, and more that will be provided by the dedicated volunteers of the conference committee and others in the genealogical, archival, and historical communities.
