Join GeneaBloggers as an FGS Ambassador

FGS 2015

We just received the notice below about the FGS Ambassador program in conjunction with the upcoming Federation of Genealogical Societies 2015 Conference in Salt Lake City, 11-14 February 2015. This year, FGS 2015 will run in conjunction with RootsTech over the same dates.

If you are a member of GeneaBloggers, we urge you to join in the fun by being an FGS Ambassador! You don’t need to attend the conference – you can actually participate from home and help spread the word about the FGS 2015 events and about genealogy. This is also a good way for you to get your genealogy blog known to others who will be following FGS 2015.  Stay tuned for more information about FGS 2015 and the FGS Ambassador program.
