It is a red-letter day in the Watson household: I actually wish I lived in Florida (mark that on your calendars, as it will never happen again).
The Florida Genealogical Society’s annual Fall Seminar will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa. Guest lecturer is none other than the renowned Elizabeth Shown Mills, one of the leading genealogists of our time, and certainly one of highest credentialed. Mills is the author of several books, including Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian and Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, both of which are industry standards.
Topics for the day’s seminar include: The Elusive Ancestor: There’s No Such Thing as “Too Poor to Trace”; Sources and Citations Simplified; The Identity Crisis: Right Name, Wrong Man? Wrong Name, Right Man?; and Okay, I Got the Neighbors–Now What Do I Do with Them?
Cost for attendance to the conference is $35 for FGS members, and $40 for non-members. For more information, visit the Florida Genealogical Society.
