I previously made a post letting readers know of the upcoming dates for this conference.  The details of the program were not available at that time.  The previous posting details follows after the separator line.

It really looks a conference that will have many top-notch speakers from the genealogical community.  Speakers noted are:

  • Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FMGS, FUGA
  • Geoffrey Baer (Friday evening Dinner Speaker)
  • Tony Burroughs, FUGA
  • Thomas MacEntee
  • Ruth Ann Abels Hager, CG, CGL
  • Carol Chandler
  • Grace DuMelle
  • George Findlen
  • Janis Minor Forte
  • Jane G. Haldeman
  • John C. Heider

Our Fall season in Illinois is not that far away.  Look at the full brochure in the link above.  This year’s conference is really in our own back yard in Oak Lawn.  Some of the previous conferences have taken place in more central and southern locations of Illinois.

I am sure there is some topic or topics of interest for you to consider attending.

Hi Everyone,

ISGS LogoI just noticed that there are dates noted for the Illinois State Genealogical Society Fall Conference for 2015.  The dates noted are for Friday, October 23, 2015 and Saturday, October 24, 2015.  The conference will be held at the Hilton Chicago/ Oak Lawn in Oak Lawn, IL.

Details for the conference are still being worked out, but the dates are now set as is the location.

The blog of the Illinois State Genealogical society notes that room rates at the hotel are noted as $119 per night.

You can look at the blog posting describing the upcoming event here at:

Mark your calendar for these dates and see what the details will be unfolding for the programs and the speakers when they become available.

Check back with the Illinois State Genealogical Society in the future for details of the 2015 conference as they become available at:

You now have the dates and the location.  The location is certainly much closer to all of us rather than being outside the Chicago Metropolitan area.  This conference will be right in our own backyard (relatively speaking!).
