We are in the midst of genealogy conference season in the Midwest. There are many wonderful opportunities for genealogists to connect with other researchers and learn new methodologies and sources. Both the Ohio Genealogical Society and Indiana Genealogical Society had their annual conferences in April, while May marks the National Genealogical Society Conference. The summer months are marked with the several regional conferences, ending with the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference in August. This is the time of year to dust off the cobwebs from your research projects or plan a research trip and attend a conference in your area. In honor of conference season, Genealogy Center staff will be sharing their personal conference stories in the coming weeks.

Subscribe to Genealogy Gems to learn at which conferences Genealogy Center staff will be speaking. And stop to say hello because conference season is the time to meet other researchers.
