I’m sure it was a lot of work for the board to make new plans, but the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2020 conference is going virtual. It was going to be the very last FGS conference and was to take place in Kansas City, Missouri. I had four presentations on the schedule and was happy to be a part of the last ever FGS conference. I have served on the FGS Board of Directors and on several committees and wanted to be present. Part of the FGS Press Release on the topic:
“Due to the ongoing concerns about COVID-19 around the nation and our concern for the health and well-being of attendees and volunteers involved with the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) 2020 Family History Conference, we are pleased to announce that the conference is going virtual. “Although we are very saddened that the last FGS conference will not be an in-person celebratory event in Kansas City, the well-being of everyone involved with the conference is our utmost priority,” said FGS President Faye Stallings.”
