Today I made my arrangements to go to the 2013 FGS Conference. It's in Fort Wayne, Indiana, August 21-24. Are you going? If so, will you be there earlier? I'm going a bit early and would like to meet up with dinner mates and such.
Though I've been to Indiana once (for an incredible Notre Dame football game experience), I've never been to the genealogical Disneyland that is the Allen County Public Library. I'm looking forward to it.
I did something I don't normally do and signed up for a luncheon. I'm going to the delegate one to hear J. Mark Lowe speak...and to learn how to be a good delegate for Chaparral Genealogical Society.
Other than that, my meals and social hours are open. From the looks of this handy downtown Fort Wayne restaurant map, there are some interesting places. It would be cool to do a Tweet-up/pub crawl one night. Any interest?
With the tickets purchased and reservations made, the next step is to scour and browse the Allen County Public Library catalog for genealogy treasures. It will be nice to work on my own family tree again.
Will I see you at FGS 2013? Let me know so I can get excited and look forward to our visit in Fort Wayne.
P.S. The early-bird FGS 2013 registration rate expires July 1, 2013. Get it done!
