The IGS Conference: It Isn't Just for Hoosiers

What do Alaska, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, and Ohio have in common? They are all represented by people registered for the Indiana Genealogical Society annual conference on April 25! (Yes, there is someone from Alaska who is registered!)

Terre Haute really is the Crossroads of America. It is easy to reach, conveniently located on Interstate 70. It is within 3 hours of Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis, and Louisville.

The Saturday, April 25 conference features Judy G. Russell, The Legal Genealogist. Her topics will be:
  • Your First Trip to the Courthouse
  • "Disabled or Deceased in the Line of Duty:" Military Pensions and the Civil War
  • Staying Out of Trouble: The Rights and Responsibilities of Today's Genealogists
  • Rogues, Rascals and Rapscallions: The Family Black Sheep
There are also sessions on DNA, Vigo County, and the Wabash Valley. You won't want to miss the vendor hall, either!

If you want tips on how to improve your local genealogical society, join us for the Society Management Seminar on Friday, April 24. It is free for officers of IGS chapters and just $5 for everyone else.

Registration through April 21 is $35 for IGS members; $45 for non-members. (You can join online through April 20 and get the member rate.) Registration at the door is $50.

Register for the IGS annual conference today! We look forward to seeing you in Terre Haute!

Terre Haute really is the Crossroads of America.
