FGS Conference Syllabus is Now Online For Registrants

FGS 2009

We received this news from Paula Stuart-Warren, fellow genealogy blogger, and we know several members of GeneaBloggers will be at the FGS Conference next month:

Jan Davenport, Chair of the 2009 Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference, announces that the conference syllabus is now online for registrants! If you are registered for the conference, you can view, download and print the syllabus materials for any of the sessions before you even leave home! (At the conference, all registrants will receive a CD with the complete syllabus.)

Go to the Conference website, click on Registration, choose whether you wish to register or just check the syllabus or add meals, enter the email address you used when you registered, and follow the prompt to add the PIN that you received with your conference registration confirmation. Next click on “Download Syllabus” and the syllabus selections pop up and you can view or print. Now you can work on your conference hour by hour schedule after reviewing the syllabus material that is there for most of the lectures.

  • Not registered? Online registration is available until August 26th.
  • Need to register at the door? That Registration Area will be open from 2:00-6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 1st at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock. It reopens on Wednesday, September 2d at 7:00 a.m. and operates all day Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Saturday is it open only in the morning. A special line will be set up for this task. You may register for one day or for the full conference.
  • Already pre-registered? Pick up your conference materials including your name tag, tote bag, door prize tickets, syllabus, and other items in that same Registration Area.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
