Connect.Explore.Refresh: Experience the 2015 FGS Conference

What could be better than being able to research in Salt Lake, meet new people, learn new things, and rev up your genealogy research?  The upcoming FGS  conference combined with Rootstech will begin February 11, 2015. 



This will be my first FGS Conference, my expectations are high.  I have had the opportunity to attend several NGS and Family History Expo Conferences.   My most recent attendance at a conference was at the 2014 Southern California Genealogy Society Jamboree.  I have thoroughly enjoyed them all but the FGS Conference will offer more opportunities to enhance my skills for my society.  I currently serve as President of the Pima County Genealogy Society.  We are a fairly new society and will be launching our first website in January 2015. 

I have learned that connecting with people at conferences is just as important as attending a class.  At the Jamboree in California I met several people from Arizona that help spread the word and attend our first seminar featuring Lisa Louise Cooke.  The interactions brought new friends and additional contacts that will help us share future events throughout Arizona and beyond.

I am excited to see what new "toys" will be available in the vendor hall.  New technologies, products and goods made to make our research easier and faster. 

The FGS Conference, RootsTech Conference and the Salt Lake Family History Library all at once?  It's Disneyland on steroids for a genealogist.  I am so excited!
