Continuing on with the story of the Pension Project War of 1812.....

 
The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS)  is having their next conference
August 21-24, 2013 in Fort Wayne, Indiana
 I will be there. Will I see you there? Let me know so we can hook up.
Fort Wayne has the second favorite place to hold a genealogical conference, Allen County Public Library houses the second largest Genealogy Center Library in the country.  
The first being in Salt Lake City- FamilySearch and the third in Texas (Houston or Dallas?).
 
NOTE: I am useing this as a little mini vacation so that I can really take advantage of the fabulous library before the conference actually begins. After the conference begins I seem to be very busy and don't have time to escape to the library. Denise Richmond and hubby Scott (I think) will also be attending. Who else will we run into? YOU?
 
Among all the classes and events will be a day of Society Sessions, plus a meet and greet for all society delegates and the "QUILT" from the Pension Project will be rafffled off. Root Cellar SGS has been entered since we donated to the project. If any of you donated individually as many of us did, those names will also be entered. So keep those warm fuzzy wishes and think good luck.
Denise and I would love to bring that quilt home for one of you. (I looked for a picture of the quilt but did not find one sorry)
 
Registration is open, but early bird prices have ended.
