FGS 2015: A Look Back in Pictures

After a successful Focus on Societies Day on Wednesday, FGS and RootsTech kicked off Thursday, February 12 and ran at full speed through Saturday, February 14. This one-time special event was indeed a special event. 

The FGS attendees who picked up their registration packets Tuesday or Wednesday were glad they avoided the Thursday morning lines.
The crowd started gathering early for the Thursday morning keynote session. This is only half of the room.
FGS President D. Joshua Taylor welcomed everyone to FGS 2015: Connect. Explore. Refresh.
Josh was joined onstage by Mary Tedesco and Kenyatta Berry to talk about Preserve the Pensions, the FGS fundraising project that will result in all War of 1812 pension records being digitized and online free forever. The project is at the 50% mark. Donate today.
The FGS booth in the Expo Hall was a busy place ... 
... especially the Society Showcase area with flyers from many FGS member societies.

Start planning today to attend FGS 2016 August 31–September 3 in Springfield, Illinois. We look forward to seeing you there.
