I just received a notice from the McHenry County Illinois Genealogical Society (MCIGS) that they will be offering an all-day genealogy conference on Saturday, July 19, 2014, at the McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, IL.
The conference is titled “Genealogy Inside Out”.
There will be 4 separate sessions throughout the day two of which will provide a choice of 4 programs to pick from while two other sessions will provide a choice of 3 programs to choose from.
Cyndi Ingle (from Cyndi’s List) and Thomas MacEntee (from Geneabloggers and High-Definition Genealogy) are two nationally known genealogy experts who will be providing presentations. There will be 5 other speakers also presenting programs.
Vendors will also be present for you to check out all kinds of genealogical material to purchase to help you in your own research.
Pre-program registration is encouraged. Discounts are given if you are an existing McHenry County Illinois Genealogical Society member. Discounts are also given if registration is done prior to June 15, 2014.
