After visiting the Lake County Genealogical Society website, I see that they have current online information regarding their upcoming 21st Annual Genealogical Workshop that will take place on Saturday, November 9, 2013.
The title for the Conference is “From Grandma’s Place to Cyberspace”
You can visit the general website for the society at:
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.
Registration and browsing of materials starts at 8 AM.
Programs run from 9 AM until 3:30 PM.
Guest speakers for the day are Cyndi Ingle Howells (Yes, THE Cyndi Howells of Cyndis List Fame) and Ginger Frere (Ginger has been a frequent presenter at our own monthly genealogy program.)
Phone contact for information is 847-201-9032.
It looks like the costs for the program are:
- $35.00 if you are a member of the society (program registration prior to October 12, 2013)
- $40.00 if you are not a member of the society (program registration prior to October 12, 2013)
- $45.00 (program registration after October 12, 2013 or as walk-in on the day of program)
I just received word of this annual program and so it is just past the date for submitting your registration at a smaller fee by the time I post this item on the blog. So it looks like by the time you read this you can expect to pay $45 to attend whether you pre-register or attend as a walk-in.
“Walk-ins” on the day of the program are OK but you are on your own for lunch. Lunch is not guaranteed for “walk-ins”. 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.
The society puts on a great annual conference with top-notch speakers and topics. You will not be disappointed. If you have not attended a local, all-day conference, this is a good one to attend.
You can always decide at the last-minute and be a “walk-in” to attend the conference (unfortunately, at the highest cost to you). I have attended conferences as a “walk-in” and I usually find that it was well-worth the added cost to attend at the last-minute if pre-scheduling was a problem for you.
