It just wouldn’t be right if I got this list out in January, or even before the new year started, now would it? Here are the genealogical events I plan to attend in 2015. This year’s schedule is light because of my recent move but I am networking and working at getting into the speaking rotation here locally (Austin, TX area) but for now, only a few lectures are planned this year so far. I do hope to see some of my friends and colleagues at some of these exciting events!
- April 9-11 – attending the Ohio Genealogical Society Conference in Columbus
- May 13-16 – attending the National Genealogical Society Conference in St. Charles, MO
- May 30 – attending the Austin Genealogical Society’s seminar featuring Judy G. Russell
- June 29-July 3 – GRIP – attending the course “Problem Solving with Church Records” by Rev. David McDonald
- August 13-15 – presenting 3 lectures at the Northwest Genealogy Conference, in Arlington, Washington
- September 21-25 – attending British Institute for the first time, Salt Lake City
- September 26-Oct 3 – research time at the Family History Library, Salt Lake City
And just because I tend to miss getting this out before the year begins:
- January 11-15, 2016 – I anticipate attending SLIG, hopefully taking the course “Corpus Juris: Advanced Legal Concepts for Genealogy” from Judy G. Russell OR “Writing a Quality Family Narrative” from John Colletta OR “Research in the South” from Mark Lowe OR … well, there are too many courses I’d like to take!
I hope to see you at one of these and I hope your genealogical year is as much fun as mine is looking to be!
