Illinois State Genealogical Society 2013 Fall Conference Announced


October 25 & 26, 2013, at Timber Creek Inn & Suites in Sandwich, Illinois

May 8, 2013 – Springfield, IL. The Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS) announces its 2013 Fall conference to be held on October 25 and 26 in Sandwich, Illinois, at the Timber Creek Inn & Suites and Convention Center.

Using The Way They Were as this year’s theme, a variety of presenters will offer lectures to assist attendees in identifying the “they” in genealogical research. In addition, a focus on “were” will explore the importance of capturing family stories and ancestor anecdotes to round out a family’s history.

Besides attending genealogy focused lectures and social events, conference goers can visit the Sandwich area which offers a variety of venues for historical sightseeing. These include area museums, tours of the Naper Settlement in Naperville, and the world famous Mies van der Rohe glass home, as well as the Farnsworth House, on the banks of the nearby Fox River.

Conference details will be available soon at the ISGS website at http://www.ilgensoc.org. For room reservations, contact the Timber Creek Inn & Suites at (866) 992-7335 or visit http://www.timbercreekinnandsuites.com (mention the ISGS conference to secure the group rate).
