Conference: FEEFHS, August 2008

Many genealogy events are coming up. August will be a busy month, what with the Federation of East European Family History Societies, the 28th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy and others.

I've already announced the Jewish genealogy conference. Remember that January 15 is the deadline if you'd like to submit a proposal. Check out the website for more information.

I attended the FEEFHS conference in Salt Lake City last year, enjoyed the programs and meeting the speakers, several of whom spoke at both FEEFHS and at the IAJGS event which immediately followed it.

This year, FEEFHS is August 1-3, 2008, in Pittsburg, PA.

Presentations by leading experts in the fields of Central and East European Genealogy, DNA testing, Online Databases, one-on-one research consultations and more are part of the program.

Friday morning's keynote speaker will be Dr. Stephen P. Morse, of the One-Stepwebsite, which was recently updated and which holds marvelous tools for all researchers.

The Saturday evening banquet will feature "Don't Stop for Red Lights: The Story of the Creation of the Nationality Rooms at the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning" by Joseph Bielecki.
