The annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies continued today in Springfield, Illinois. (You can read my report of Day #1 at http://goo.gl/Wb68I.) The morning started with the keynote session. FGS President Pat Oxley welcomed the attendees and made several announcements.
Probably the most interesting announcement was the number of attendees: more than 2,000 have already attended and this is only the morning of the second day. That number is expected to grow even more as more "walk-ins" appear in the next three days. In short, this is one of the largest FGS conferences ever held. The 2,000 attendees include people from 48 different states (including Alaska and Hawaii) and 5 countries. Not bad!
