FGS - My First National Conference!


On Wednesday I'll be heading down I-75 to Knoxville for the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) Annual Conference. I'm really excited because this will be my first national genealogy conference and my first chance to meet other GeneaBloggers. It's only a two hour drive so I plan to get in a little research at the East Tennessee Historical Society on Wednesday afternoon. 

After reviewing the program and wavering back and forth several times, I've finally picked the workshops I want to attend. I suspect I've over scheduled myself but I couldn't actually plan to skip a session (well except for the 8:00 AM sessions, I'm really not an early morning person). 

I hope to blog about this experience along the way but if that doesn't happen you'll know I just didn't have enough strength left at the end of each day.

  4. You have a wonderful time! Just let yourself be a sponge and soak up all you can while you are there. You can write after it is over.

  6. I'm also excited to be attending my first national conference. Like you, I have selected the programming I want to attend (sort of; still not sure on a few slots that have more than one presentation of interest). Hope to meet you and all the Genea-Bloggers there!
