Attendee Information:

Why attend a FGS Conference?
 
Family History Learning takes center stage at every FGS Conference with 4 days jam-packed with sessions and workshops catering to all skill levels — beginner, intermediate, and advanced — delivered by nationally recognized speakers, educators, and regional experts. An FGS national conference program always delivers a compelling group of tracks guaranteed by the end of the conference to inspire and rejuvenize an attendee.
 
Focus on Societies Day always kicks off FGS Conferences on Wednesdays with a complete day devoted to societies — society leaders, society members, and those interested in learning more about societies. Enjoy a full day of sessions on varying topics such as technology, publications, event coordination, project coordination, volunteer recruitment & retention, society growth, marketing & publicity, leadership skills, management principles, and more. There are always plenty of success stories and innovative solutions to ongoing challenges shared among attendees. Focus on Societies Day is both a learning and networking experience like no other for those involved in societies and those who want to be involved with societies.
 
Librarian's Day is a pre-conference event held on Tuesdays designed for librarians, archivists, and other informational professionals serving family history research.
 
Society Showcase, located in the FGS booth in the Exhibit Hall, allows visitors and attendees to "travel" the US and around the world discovering what specific resources genealogical societies can provide the individual researcher. Follow your ancestors' migration patterns as you move from society to society learning what is available to researchers in each locality. You have the ability to ask questions, collect brochures, and connect with like-minded genealogists and family historians.
 
FGS Exhibit Hall is always a hub of activity with vendors featuring the latest technology, books, maps, gadgets, and demonstrations as well as genealogical societies providing information for genealogists and family historians.
