Preparing to Attend a ConferenceAre you wondering what attending a large genealogy conference is all about? Between now and the conference this blog will have tips and guidance. If you can get to Marlborough, Massachusetts on Saturday, April 22, 2006 you might want to attend the daylong seminar of The Massachusetts Genealogical Council. It sounds like an interesting day and one of the sessions is devoted to attending conferences. The description of just this one session from their website is:
"Preparing for the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) Conference. Prepare for the genealogical opportunity of a decade. The FGS Conference comes to Boston from August 30 to September 2, 2006! This is expected to be one of the largest genealogical conferences ever held. There will be nearly 400 lectures from experts, and attendees and presenters will come from all over the world.
