A Great Event at the Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois

Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois

I want to thank the organizers at the Genealogy Society of Southern Illinois for putting on a great event yesterday – their 41st annual conference! I was the featured speaker for the event and there was a large crowd of eager and engaged genealogy enthusiasts in attendance. We had lots of fun and with my four lectures I think the attendees have enough new info and websites to explore for the next few months!

The conference was held at the John A. Logan College in Carterville, Illinois which is about 323 miles south of Chicago. I traveled with Jane Haldeman, president of the Illinois State Genealogical Society, who set up a booth for ISGS in the vendor hall.

If you are in the Southern Illinois / St. Louis, Missouri area next August, mark your calendars for the next GSSI conference featuring D. Joshua Taylor!
