Registration Open for IGS Conference in Fort Wayne

Registration is now open for the Indiana Genealogical Society's annual conference, set for Saturday, April 28th at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne. Debra Mieszala, CG will be the featured speaker, with sessions on:

  • Lessons From A Snoop: Collaterals and Associates - Crucial information on direct ancestors is often found by nosing into the lives of collateral relatives, associates, and neighbors. Case studies present examples of invaluable finds.
  • Digging Through Documents Word by Word - Proper scrutiny of each piece of information in a document is essential to understanding that item’s evidentiary value. Studying every word’s meaning and context ensures that evidence has been properly analyzed and comprehended.
  • Patently Unique: Locating Patent Records, Online and Off
  • Bringing Our Soldiers Home

There will also be sessions offered on expert tips, FamilySearch news, and writing a book using Family Tree Maker and Microsoft Word.

In between sessions, attendees can research at the Genealogy Center, browse the vendor area or enjoy the hospitality offered by the Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana.
