"A Conference for the Nation’s Genealogists" is an annual event of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. It moves all around the U.S. and the 2009 host is the Arkansas Genealogical Society and the place is Little Rock, Arkansas. The conference theme is Passages through Time which symbolizes the journey taken as we learn more about our ancestors, their place in history, and the lives they led.
Join your fellow family historians, librarians, editors, archivists, historians, writers, professional genealogists, software developers, book and database vendors, volunteers, and the growing number of younger genealogists as we network, learn, share, and even have some fun. You might meet a 3rd cousin you didn’t know about or someone from an ancestral home town.
This year’s conference is being held in Little Rock’s Statehouse Convention Center. The Exhibit Hall, on-site registration area, and the lecture rooms are conveniently located in the same building that is easily walkable. One host hotel, the Peabody, is attached to the convention center. The Doubletree is less than a block’s walk.
