FGS Regional/WSGS 2017 Gene-A-Rama Conference

This week, I’m attending the FGS/Wisconsin State Genealogical Society Gene-A-Rama conference in Wisconsin Dells. The syllabus was sent to me via email. I prefer receiving it this way. I can then print out just the pages I want, and save $30 by not buying the printed syllabus that can sometimes be as big and heavy as a phone book. (Been there, done that!)

The conference has impressive speakers scheduled, some I’ve heard before, but will attend their lectures again. Curt B. Witcher, David E. Rencher, Rorey Cathcart, just to name a few. Of course, what’s a conference without all the fabulous vendors. I brought extra tote bags for the goodies I plan to bring home. Shopping, shopping, shopping!

I’ve attended various FGS events in the past so this conferences should be good. I hope to talk to WSGS representatives to ask if I should research at the historical society in Madison or perhaps go to the archive that best represents Sheboygan County where my Ramminger line is located.

I’m looking forward to visiting Wisconsin Dells again. My husband, daughters and I visited many years ago, with my cousin and her family. Great resort town. My mother took my sister, brother and I to the Dells in the early 1960s. This visit should bring back happy memories.
