On the Road with ISGS

Over the next month ISGS will be traveling to different events with the ISGS booth. Next week Jane Haldeman, Janice Fritsch and Joan Murray will be  at the Federation of Genealogical Societies National Conference, “Gone to Texas” in San Antonio, Texas. The conference will include workshops, guest speakers, an exhibitor’s hall and special events. .ISGS  will have a booth set up in the exhibitor’s hall where we will provide information about ISGS membership and our upcoming 2014 Fall Conference and free ISGS Webinars
In addition, ISGS has also been invited to exhibit at the  taping of the PBS television series, “Genealogy Roadshow.” The show is part detective story, and part emotional journey. Participants are chosen for the show and then genealogy, history and DNA experts use family heirlooms, letters, pictures, historical documents and other clues to hunt down information about their ancestors.  The answers are then revealed on camera before a local audience, in a historic building relevant to the regions. PBS has invited ISGS along with other genealogical societies and associations to exhibit at the filming event in St. Louis, MO (August 23-24).  The public is welcomed to attend this free event. Attendees are able to watch the live filming and interact with the genealogical societies in attendance. Information about attending the St. Louis filming can be found here: http://ninenet.org/GenealogyRoadshow.
