This afternoon I had the pleasure of working with several ISGS board members at the exhibit hall of the Federation of Genealogical Societies' 2010 Annual Conference (#FGS10) in Knoxville, Tennessee. We spent a few hours setting up our booth with flyers, information about our upcoming Fall conference in Peoria, as well as other information, books and items highlighting the Prairie State.
I've been here since Monday afternoon and most of the ISGS folks arrived either Tuesday evening or today. Tomorrow, Thursday, August 18, is the first day of the exhibit hall and we hope to not only get the word out on the fact that ISGS is the co-host for #FGS11 in Springfield, IL, September 6-10, 2011 - but also sign up some new members and help others with Illinois genealogy resources.
If you are at #FGS10, please stop by booths 113-115 or look for the folks with the blue and orange mardi gras beads and the Illinois badge ribbons!
