Federation of Genealogical Societies 2016 Conference
Wednesday, August 31 through Saturday, September 3
Federation of Genealogical Societies 2016 Conference  (National Events)
Springfield, Illinois

Join Us for the FGS 2016 Conference Time Travel: Centuries of Memories

For its 40th anniversary, the Federation of Genealogical Societies returns to Illinois for its 2016 annual conference, as it did back in 2011. Springfield, the state capital and the historical home of Abraham Lincoln, will host thousands of genealogists and genealogical society members for Time Travel: Centuries of Memories, August 31 to September 3, 2016.

If you have attended an FGS conference, you know the excitement of not only learning from many of the top genealogy speakers in the country, but also networking and socializing with fellow family historians in a congenial setting.

The local host for FGS 2016 is the Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS), founded in 1968 and based in Springfield. FGS National Conference Chairs and ISGS members Janice Fritsch and Susie Pope will be assisted by FGS and ISGS members and many others in providing a unique and exceptional educational experience for every genealogist.
