Week 24: Genealogy Events: When it comes to genealogy events, our cup runneth over lately. There are so many fabulous family history events being held across the globe. For which one are you most grateful? Is it an annual event or a one-time thrill? Who runs the event? Why is it special?
My best genealogy experiences ever were the years I was able to attend IGHR, the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Studies at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. I learned so much and I would recommend the Institute to anyone at any level of expertise in researching their families. The most fun genealogy event for me was the RootsTech Conference last February - the combination of genealogy and technology was outstanding. I'm excited that I get to go to Birmingham the end of August for the FGS Conference - one of my favorite national conferences in one of my favorite cities. No way to pick a favorite. Just send me to a genealogy or family history event and I'm certain to enjoy!
