If you are on Facebook and other social media, you saw the great education and fun many genealogists had at the annual Federation of Genealogical Societies’ conference that was held last week in Springfield, Illinois. I attended the three evening events and three luncheons. It was a wonderful time and I heard many people saying they were planning ahead for the 2017 conference in Pittsburgh. If you weren’t there, have you thought about what you missed? You have almost a year to save up and to ask family and friends for gifts that will help you attend?
