The National Genealogical Society’s 2011 Family History Conference is looming large. I’ve been looking forward to this conference since hearing Jeffrey Haines speak about it at last August’s Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference. Helen F. M. Leary is speaking, and it may, quite frankly, be the last opportunity to attend a lecture given by this bastion of genealogy. Plus, many of the lectures are geared toward Southern researchers. And it’s in Charleston. What genealogist/historian doesn’t want to visit this lore-rich, historic city?
