- Register for the conference at https://www.fgsconference.org/registration/start/. Read the tour of how to register if you have any questions.
- Make hotel reservations. The downtown hotels are full, but there's no need to worry. Fort Wayne has plenty of hotels that are a short, easy drive away from the Grand Wayne Center and the Allen County Public Library. Conference Co-Chair, Paula Stuart-Warren, gives you a few options.
- Add city directories to your ACPL research plan. Conference Co-Chair, Dawne Slater-Putt tells us about the great collection of directories at The Genealogy Center.
- Tell your family members about the FGS 2013 Conference. The conference would be a great time to meet a distant cousin for the first time, take a photo of an ancestor's descendents, or pass the genealogy bug on to the next generation.
- Listen to FGS Radio. FGS hosts a radio show called My Society that tackles issues that face genealogical societies and has a member society spotlight. Currently the show is interviewing an FGS 2013 presenter on each episode. Check out past episodes:
