November 13, 2010 Lake County Genealogical Society of Illinois 18th Annual Genealogical Workshop

Hi Everyone!

After visiting and re-visiting the Lake County Genealogical Society website, I do now see that they have current online information regarding their upcoming 18th Annual Genealogical Workshop on Saturday, November 13, 2010.

I had received a paper handout of their upcoming program but I wanted to share the information electronically.  Unfortunately, their web site had not been updated with this program information.  Now it is updated and I can more easily direct you to the information.

This is an all-day conference that is taking place at the Cultural and Civic Center of Round Lake Beach that is located at 2007 Civic Center Way in Round Lake Beach, IL.  A contact phone number for the program is 847-201-9032.

Registration and browsing of materials starts at 8 AM.

Programs run from 9 AM until 3:30 PM.

Guest speakers for the day are D. Joshua Taylor, MLS and Dan Niemiec.

Josh Taylor is presenting 4 programs during the day and Dan Niemiec is presenting 3 programs during the day.

It looks like the costs for the program are:

  • $35.00 if you are a member of the society (program registration prior to October 15, 2010)
  • $40.00 if you are not a member of the society  (program registration prior to October 15, 2010)
  • $45.00  (program registration after October 15, 2010)

It does not mention that they accept “walk-ins” on the day of the program but societies generally will allow such a process but may indicate that you are on your own for lunch.  You would pay the highest fee on that day.

Please use the following link that will get you directly to the PDF file that has all of the information about the day including the registration material, program titles and times, speaker biographies and directions.

I have been to their programs some time back and I always felt that they had top-notch speakers.  I would definitely recommend attending this annual event.

I know you will enjoy the day.
