Don't forget about the FGS Genealogy Conference this August!

Did you attend the NGS Conference in Salt Lake City earlier this month or wish you had after hearing about the great lectures, special events, luncheons, and Exhibit Hall? There's another chance to attend a large genealogy event that will revitalize your research, teach you new techniques, tell about the growing software applications, surround you with folks willing to talk family history, have three days of an Exhibit Hall filled with a plethora of goodies, and give you tickets for fantastic door prize drawings (anyone need a free week in Salt Lake City?)? This year's FGS Conference is in beautiful and bustling Knoxville, Tennessee in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Maybe you would like to learn from some of the top speakers in the field of genealogy, sit with them at a luncheon, hear from the software developers first-hand, spend an evening at the Museum of Appalachia, visit with experts who can help you on your way to solving genealogical dilemmas, learn about ways to help your genealogical society grow, and most of all revel in four days of excitement.

Don't forget to register for the 2010 FGS Conference by June 1st. If you register on or before that date, you will save a whopping $50.00 off the full registration price for the conference. It's easy to register online or to print out the registration form and mail it in.

It's easy to register for the luncheons and special events at the same time -- but if you need to add others after you register, that is easy to do. When you register online you receive a PIN that will allow you to go back in and add another luncheon or two or register for one of the special evening events.

Leaving the excitement and education of the NGS Conference and the friendliness and helpfulness of fellow genealogists was tough -- except that I knew the feeling would be repeated in August in Knoxville.
