I created the Calendar of Genealogy Events at http://www.eogn.com/calendar on May 26, 2013, then moved it to a more powerful web publishing platform on September 21. I am pleased with the growth and input from newsletter readers. The Calendar continues to grow.
The purpose of the calendar is to provide information about future genealogy conferences, seminars, conventions, cruises, trips, and even online "webinars." All information is to be provided by you and other readers of this newsletter.
You can go to the Calendar of Genealogy Events at http://www.eogn.com/calendar at any time to see events for your area. You can click on any state, province, or country in the list to see future events in that area. Some areas have lots of listings. Others, mostly rural states or provinces, may have nothing listed.
Changes made in the past month include genealogy events being held in: Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ireland, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nova Scotia, Oklahoma, Online Webinars, Ontario, Oregon, Quebec, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
A few of those changes may have simply been someone deleting past events. However, the majority are additions of new, upcoming genealogy events.
I would like to invite everyone to contribute future events in your area. You can do so by directly entering them into the EOGN Calendar of Genealogy Events, there is no need to submit them to someone else and then wait and wait and wait. If anyone does add inappropriate entries, you or anyone else can delete them within seconds. All entries are published immediately, free of charge. If you do see a listing for a past event, please feel free to delete it from the Calendar.
You can enter information about the next meeting of your local genealogy society, a statewide or national conference, or most anything else that will be a meeting of genealogists. There's even a page for online webinars to be held in the future and another page for genealogy cruises.
If you are going to be a speaker at a future meeting, you are especially invited to add information about the event.
