Wednesday, August 21 through Saturday, August 24
Federation of Genealogical Societies 2019 Conference  (Special Event)
Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 Calvert St NW, Washington, DC 20008
Hosted by the Federation of Genealogical Societies in cooperation with sponsoring local societies, corporate sponsors, and partner organizations, FGS 2019 offers a new full four-day format jam-packed with topics of interest to every genealogist. Whether you’re a beginner just starting to explore your family history or an old hand at research, the wide variety of new and inclusive topics offers something for you. And true to its own roots as a federation composed of genealogical societies, FGS offers society management topics throughout all four days of the conference rather than a Wednesday-only focus as in years past.
