FGS Names Official Bloggers for FGS2011

Did you hear the news? The Federation of Genealogical Societies named their official bloggers for the 2011 conference.

I am thrilled to have been chosen as part of such a fantastic group.

Regular readers know the drill, but if you've recently stumbled upon this blog, here's what you can expect from me as an "Official Blogger."

There will be play-by-play action.
I cover conferences chronologically, describing what I did or saw each day. Sometimes if a lot happens in a day, I will break the time into smaller posts.

There will be pictures.
I am a visual learner and an armchair traveler. I love it when people use photos in their blogs, so I do the same.

There will be take-aways for the readers at home.
If I learn about a new tool, big news or powerful speakers who make impressions, I'll be sure to tell you about it.

There will be commentary.
I have opinions about the conference experience. Sometimes I share them.

There might be bacon.
If a certain vendor hosts a breakfast and happens to invite me again there *will* be bacon, but I don't want to jinx it.

In the interest of full disclosure, FGS did provide a complimentary registration to the conference, plus an $8 ticket to a social event. All other costs incurred are mine. Learn more about this event at the FGS conference blog.

Special thanks to the Federation of Genealogical Societies for this opportunity. I will do my best to cover the conference from my perspective and share it with the genealogy community.



  1. Bacon ... I KNEW there was a reason I hated missing this conference!

  2. And it's GOOD bacon. The unnamed vendor doesn't scrimp.

  3. Ditto, Kathleen. I look forward to meeting you.

  4. Look forward to seeing you again Amy.
