Speaking of Friends – Are you going to FGS 2015?
|Louise St Denis, Director at National Institute |
of Genealogical Studies and friend Roylene
As I look through the list of classes, keynotes and activities, it appears that this conference promises to be one of the best yet.

about technology. Sharing ancestors' stories is a passion of mine and I would like to learn how to do it better. And I really need to learn more about u
sing the technology available. The Compiling Singular Records into Lively Stories track has some great classes to help with sharing ancestors' stories and there are a variety of classes about technology in the Communications for Today track, Modern Access to Vintage Resources track and of course the Technology track as well as Technology for the Future track. There are so many options, it is going to be a challenge for me to narrow it down.
I always love the Exhibit Halls and I am super excited about the one at FGS this year. Having a joint hall with Rootstech means it will be one of the largest Exhibit Halls ever. The Exhibit halls are always bubbling in energy and excitement and packed to the brim with society representatives, genealogy companies, software, books and all kinds of fun genealogy products. Knowing my love for books, I have installed an app on my phone that lists all of the books I already own so that any purchase I make will add to my collection and not duplicate it.
Classes, the Exhibit Hall, activities and meals all will provide opportunities to meet other genealogist from all over. And while there are many aspects of conferences that I absolutely love, I have to confess that meeting and making new friends is one of my favorite parts.
Speaking of friends----I hope to seeYOU there!
