The Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference 2014 continues in San Antonio, Texas, where hundreds of genealogists and genealogical society leaders have come to the convention center along the River Walk for workshops, presentations, luncheons and reunions with other family history enthusiasts from across the country.


Prominently showcased at this year’s conference is the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ Preserve the Pensions Project, a fundraising effort to help digitize the U.S. War of 1812 pension files located at the National Archives and Records Administration building in Washington, D.C.

The Federation of Genealogical Societies counts among its members more than 500 genealogy and family organizations. A listing of member organizations is available in the FGS Society Hall.
