FGS 2015: Genealogy Doesn't Stop for Lunch

Luncheons at FGS conferences are popular for good reasons.
  • They are convenient. The luncheons at FGS 2015 will be in the Salt Palace Convention Center. You won't have to think about what to do for lunch, and you won't have to leave the building. 
  • They have built-in lunch companions. It's a great place to make new genealogy friends whether you're at the conference with friends or attending alone. Everyone at your table will share your interest in family history. 
  • They feature great speakers and delightful presentations. Genealogists never get "enough" genealogy and luncheons give us more. It's amazing how much you can learn while being thoroughly entertained.   
Since the 2015 venue is shared with RootsTech, FGS will have fewer luncheons than usual — one Wednesday, two each Thursday and Friday, and one Saturday. That means they may sell out early. Register now to ensure getting the luncheons you want.
