The following was written by the Federation of Genealogical Societies:
The Federation of Genealogical Societies and Arkansas Genealogical Society invite you to four full days of genealogical education (and fun) surrounded by others who understand what you do and actually want to talk about it. The 2009 Conference “Passages through Time” will be held September 2-5, 2009 in beautiful and amazing Little Rock, Arkansas. Four days? Arrive on Tuesday, September 1st and make it 4.25 days!
Register by June 2, 2009 and save $50.00 off the full conference registration cost. That is a significant savings, but to take advantage of this make your online reservation http://www.fgs.org/2009conference/registration/index.php before the end of June 2d or make sure your regular mail registration is postmarked on or before June 2d. Of course, you may register after that, but saving $50.00 is mighty tempting as many have already indicated by registering for this exciting conference.
View the extensive conference program at www.FGSConference.org. It features many well-known specialists in genealogy, history, archives, and libraries along with lots of new faces and many lectures you have never heard before. Several tracks on Wednesday are geared toward those involved in running genealogical societies.
Use that $50.00 savings in the Exhibit Hall where you’ll find row after row of genealogical vendors, societies, software, memberships, databases, newsletters, books, maps . . .
Check the conference blog – a sort of ongoing online newsletter – for conference and locality news, updates, hotels, local transportation, expanded vendor, speaker and lecture info, advertising opportunities for businesses, individuals and societies, special events, FAQs and so much more. www.FGSConferenceBlog.org.
Join your fellow genealogists for a night at the ballpark http://www.fgs.org/2009conference/program/ballpark.php complete with a baseball game, lots of food, and door prizes. The Arkansas Travelers team is a AA affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels.
Arrive on Tuesday, September 1st, pick up your registration packet anytime after 2:00 and join us for a free Ice Cream Social from 3:00-5:00 for registrants only.
