The annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies will be held soon: August 30 to September 2. This year’s event is shaping up to be a good one with a theme of Building Bridges to the Past. This year’s event is expected to attract close to 2,000 attendees from all over the United States and the world. If you can be in Pittsburgh during this event, you absolutely will want to attend at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
The Federation of Genealogical Societies is an “umbrella organization” of local, statewide, and regional genealogical societies. In fact, FGS includes 500+ member societies representing more than 500,000 genealogists.
The David L. Lawrence Convention Center is a good venue for an event of this size. First, it is modern with all the state-of-the-art one expects on a convention center these days. In addition, it is close to numerous restaurants, shops, research facilities, and historic sites.
