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.
