On the Road Again, This Time to the FGS Conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana

This is a quick notice to let you know there may not be as many articles as normal posted in this newsletter in the next few days. If you have been reading this newsletter for some time, you already know that I often travel to genealogy conferences. I will be in Fort Wayne, Indiana from now through the end of the week. I will be attending the annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. For details about this conference, see https://www.fgsconference.org.

I hope to write about the conference events that I see and attend. I suspect I will also post a number of photographs of the conference in this newsletter while I am there. Who knows? I may even get to attend a few presentations!

I should be back home next week for a few days before heading out on my next trip.

Stay tuned!


Hoping to finally get to meet you Dick!


I am hoping to get a chance to meet you, Dick!


Hope I get to meet you, sir!


Hope you are announcing having a dinner after the conference?


    No. I had to give up on that once it became too popular. Finding seats for 75 to 125 people on a Saturday night in a restaurant in an unfamiliar city became almost impossible.

    I do hold dinners once a year immediately after RootsTech in Salt Lake City because that is simple. Same city, same hotel, same procedure every year. I just send the banquet manager an email a few months in advance and give the date and write, “I want to do the same thing we did last year.” The banquet manager pulls out the records from last year and everything happens with little involvement on my part. I just works. But I had to quit the others.
