Re-Post Reminder – October 19-20, 2012 Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall Conference; “Family History In Profile”;Rockford, IL

Hi Everyone,

As the Fall genealogical season starts to get fast and furious, I wanted to make a re-post on an upcoming annual genealogical conference hosted by the Illinois State Genealogical Society.  The conference will take place on October 19 and 20, 2012, Friday and Saturday, in Rockford, IL.  The program title for the two-day event is called “Family History in Profile”.

What follows after the separator line is the text of the original post of this announcement of the conference made on May 15, 2012.

Believe it or not the time from May 2012 to today has flown by rapidly.  A new reminder of the ISGS program in October is now warranted!

All of the details of the conference follow after the separator line.

Check out the individual programs being offered, the speakers, the cost, the location etc.  See if there is something that fits with your own research interests.  October is right around the corner.

Hi Everyone!

The program notices have been running “hot and heavy” over the last few days as I place these notices in the blog for your planning purposes.

The most recent one for which I have received information is the annual “Fall Conference” that is being put together by the Illinois State Genealogical Society.  The title of the program is “Family History in Profile”.    The society over the last few years has been moving its program around the state.  For many years it was being held in the Chicagoland area making it very easy for us living in the area to attend.

This year’s program will be in Rockford, IL at the Best Western Clock Tower Resort and Conference Center.

There are many genealogists throughout the rest of the state of Illinois and they also deserve a shot at being able to attend a large-scale genealogy program closer to their own home base.

The Illinois State Genealogical Society has a wonderful description of this upcoming Fall program on their website.  You can look at all of the details of this 2-day program at:

2012 Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall Conference

The program has 9 well-known speakers who will be providing a great deal of genealogical material on a variety of topics over the two days.

There are a variety of different costs depending on whether you are a member of the Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS), whether you will be attending the Friday evening programs or just have dinner and listen to the key speaker during dinner or whether you are a non-member of ISGS and what you will be attending.  So you want to give the website a good going over for the details on the costs you may incur depending on what you will participate in.

You do not have to attend both days of the conference.  You can attend on Friday only or Saturday only.  It is the most economical to attend both days along with the Friday evening dinner.  But you can pick and attend the programs on just one day or the other.

As you can see there is a great deal of conference and program activity going on of late that I am happy to share with you.

This is just one more of the many that I am aware of at this time.  Rockford is not all that far from us if you were thinking to attend.  Take a good look at the information of the conference and the facility from the above link from the Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS).
