GeneaBloggers at FGS 2014 Conference in San Antonio This Week

FGS 2014
Many members of GeneaBloggers – at least 40 – will gather with thousands of genealogists in San Antonio, Texas this week starting today to attend the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ 2014 Conference.

 GeneaBloggers Members – BEADS!

This year’s edition of GeneaBloggers beads – with cowboy hats and cacti – are generously sponsored by MyHeritage. If you’ve signed up with us and your blog is currently listed on GeneaBloggers.com, stop by Booth 601/603 in the FGS 2014 Exhibit Hall and pick up your set. And while you’re there make sure to thank MyHeritage for their support of GeneaBloggers!

Stop By and Say Howdy!

I’ll be there presenting four lectures plus an Exhibit Hall session beginning on Wednesday 28 August 2014 – I can’t wait to meet up with my genealogy colleagues and I look forward to making new genealogy friends. If you are at FGS 2014, please stop and say hello – when I’m not lecturing, you’ll find my in the Exhibit Hall talking with vendors and other attendees. For those of you unable to attend, follow the hashtag #fgs2014 on Twitter for the latest news (see the Twitter feed in the sidebar)!
