In a little more than three weeks, I will be on my way to Knoxville, TN, for the Federation of Genealogical Societies’ annual conference. I’ve been looking forward to this all year. I will (finally!) be able to meet several fellow genealogists whose work I’ve read or with whom I’ve corresponded, attend lectures on a variety of topics given by some of the best speakers of our time, and visit several great Eastern Tennessee repositories. Who could ask for more?
My tentative plans are to attend next year’s National Genealogical Society Family History Conference, held in Charleston, SC, from 11 – 14 May 2011. Aside from all the wonderful opportunities presented by the conference, Charleston itself holds an irresistable appeal, being rich in heritage, history, and lore.
What a fabulous time it is to be a genealogist!
