FGS/NEHGS Genealogy Conference - 2006
End of Summer Plans? Come to the FGS/NEHGS Genealogy  Conference
Have you made plans for the end of the lazy days of summer? How
about a  trip
to Boston, Massachusetts for four days of learning more about
genealogy
including records, books, repositories, maps, software, websites,
and more? Not
only will you be able to learn, but you can be there to support
the USGenWeb
track at this Federation of Genealogical Societies and New
England Historic
Genealogical Society Conference in the Birthplace of American
Genealogy. The
conference planning committee is thrilled to be hosting the
USGenWeb track. You
will be with many of your fellow USGenWeb volunteers and with
many grateful
users of the USGenWeb offerings.
Discount registration deadline nears
Before I tell you more, there is an important deadline coming up.
If you
register by July 1st (postmark date or online) you still can save
$30.00
($155.00 fee vs. $180.00 after that date). That pays for four
full days  of lectures.

What you get for your money
Almost 350 sessions of interest to family historians, writer,
editors,
professional genealogists, lecturers, librarians, archivists,
webmasters,
volunteers, historians, columnists, booksellers, and others are
being offered.  For
one conference fee you can attend sessions for four days
straight. A huge
Exhibit Hall will be filled with booth after booth of vendors and
exhibitors of
genealogical software, books (new, old, rare), charts, maps, CDs,
DVDs, gadgets,
 and more. The presenters and exhibitors will be from the U.S.,
Canada,
England,  Ireland, and Scotland.
A bit extra
Luncheons and dinners are another important part of these
conferences and
for a reasonable extra fee for such conference, anyone can attend
these. (It?s a
 good way to be sure you have a plan and a seat for lunch!) Don?t
forget that

31st. Details
