Just a reminder that the GeneaQuest 2016 Program offered by the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) will soon take place on Saturday, June 18, 2016.
This is a wonderful program put on by this outstanding organization.
This one is well-worth attending! If you register before June 8, 2016 you will still obtain a price discount and be able to obtain a lunch. If you register after June 8, 2016 you will pay the highest fee and will not be able to get a lunch as part of registration. It does look like they will accept walk-ins (without lunch and at highest registration ) if you are so inclined to want to attend at the last-minute. It is always good to check out the website for the society below to see if capacity has been reached and no walk-ins will be accepted on the day of the event.
Below the separator line is my original posting about this program.

Congratulations to the CAGGNI group!
This organization is really clicking on all cylinders!
If you have never attended a local, all-day genealogy conference, this is certainly one to consider. Not only do you see great topics given by great speakers, but you can fill the time in-between program segments by sitting down with experts present at the “GeneaUs” Bar on the variety of topics noted above. Non-stop genealogy all day!
Best wishes for a truly great all-day local genealogy conference!
