It is time to haul out the suitcase and pack for San Antonio, Texas and the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference 2014. The annual gathering of genealogical society leaders and others who share a passion for family history will be held August 27-30 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center next to the famous River Walk. There will be history, food and music, but I am most excited to renew friendships and attend workshops and presentations with other genealogists from across the nation.


The Federation of Genealogical Societies is a wonderful resource and advocate for genealogical societies. Along with the annual conference, FGS supports the work of societies and their leaders with webinars, magazines, newsletters, and other helpful publications along with review of bylaws, newsletters and websites submitted by members. It was an honor in the past to serve on the organization’s Board of Directors. I take every opportunity to promote the good work of FGS and how it serves the interests of the genealogical community.

Maybe I will see you in San Antonio!
