The FGS 2020 Family History Conference Blazing Trails in the Heart of America is quickly approaching! Yes, we are disappointed that we won’t be gathering together in Kansas City in a little over a month, but there’s always a silver lining where there’s disappointment. In this case, the exciting genealogy event we had planned can now come to you in your own home! Many more participants can join us virtually than could have made the trek to KC.
But the world has become a challenging place for us all. We have not been able to gather together in the spirit of genealogy and friendship to network and learn from each other. Seminars, workshops, and conferences have been cancelled or postponed. The lack of in person events also presents the challenge of how to create awareness and promote our 2020 Virtual Conference.
Please help us spread the word and use this links in communications with your membership. They provide additional information on our website that you may want to refer to:
