FGS 2014 Conference Blog Compendium

The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) 2014 Conference is underway in San Antonio, Texas.  I am not there because of family matters.



However, I will try to keep this blog compendium up-to-date over the next week or two as geneabloggers post their news, photos, experiences, etc.  I look forward to hearing what happens in the class sessions, the exhibit hall, around conference tables, in meetings, and in the bars and restaurants.

Thanks so much for doing this, Randy, especially from three days in the future! There's a technology we can all use!

Thanks for this great compendium of blog posts from FGS 2014. Sorry you couldn't make it to San Antonio! As you can read in my FGS wrap-up, this was my very first national conference. (I know, I know. What took me so long?!!) Read more at: So I'm from Texas... (Smallest Leaf's take on FGS 2014).

Thanks for doing this Randy - what a great resource for reading about the conference. I was a blog ambassador for this one and wrote lots of promo posts (given that I've spent a bit of time in San Antonio), but I was only able to attend for one day. Here is my report: http://abt-unk.blogspot.com/2014/09/thankful-thursday-report-on-fgs2014-in.html.
