Beginning Genealogy Workshop - Sept. 14 - East Texas Genealogical Society

I haven't yet caught up enough to write about the wonderful time I had in Fort Wayne, Indiana, at the FGS 2013 conference. I hope to get to that soon. This year was my first year to speak at both national genealogical conferences—NGS and FGS—and it was very exciting for me.

This Saturday I will be working with Scott Fitzgerald, June Everheart, Sam and Sherry Kidd, and other members of the East Texas Genealogical Society (ETGS) to present a "Beginner's Genealogy Workshop." ETGS has presented this workshop several times in the past and this is the first time I will be helping with the workshop.

For more information on the workshop and registration information see ETGS Society Seminar and Workshop and the notice on the Texas State Genealogical Society blog.
