Received a message from my friend Loretta Evans that I thought deserved more notice. Here’s what she wrote:
“I want everyone to know about the upcoming professionals’ conference,
sponsored by ICAPGen and the BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy.” Here are the details:
Becoming an Excellent Genealogist Conference
ICAPGen and the BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy would like to
announce their 2006 conference, “Becoming an Excellent Genealogist.” It will
be held on November 3rd and 4th at the Harold B. Lee Library on BYU Campus
in Provo, Utah.
The Harold B. Lee Library is an excellent genealogical and historical
research facility, and it is only an hour’s drive south of Salt Lake City
and the Family History Library.
Details about our conference and a downloadable registration form are on our
web site at: http://www.icapgen.org/Programs/conference.htm . If you have
additional questions, or if you would like to have a flyer mailed to you,
please contact Loretta Evans firstname.lastname@example.org .
Those who register by October 18th will receive a discount.
Each class has been chosen to provide advanced training for the genealogical
researcher. You will be able to learn important techniques for research and
writing. In addition, you will learn about the culture of your ancestors
from Germany, Scandinavia, Spain, and England. Those who would like to take
the Accredited Genealogist examination can get answers to their questions
and concerns. Professional researchers can learn ways to improve their skills.
Keynote Speaker will be David Rencher, AG, CG, FUGA. His topic will be
“Shifting Technologies Create a Shifting Profession,” describing the
unrelenting impact of the Information Age on the advanced genealogist’s
tools, methodology and business model.
The Gala Banquet will be held at the Museum of Art on BYU Campus, Friday,
November 3rd. Surrounded by beautiful works of art, we will feast on the
Grand Buffet. Kory Meyerink, AG, FUGA, will entertain us with “It’s True,
It’s True! I Saw it in Print!” Humorous stories and anecdotes actually found
in genealogical writings. But, some actually turned out to be true. Can your
truth radar discern the accurate stories from the embellished?
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity.
