Fall Seminar

The Tri-State Genealogical Society will have their annual fall seminar on Saturday, 20 October 2007 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center, Hwy 41 North at Lynch Road, Evansville, Indiana. Registration and browsing of vendors' tables will be from 8 to 9 am. and will be followed by Opening Remarks . The speaker is Lloyd Hosman, who will talk on Newspaper Research, Making the Most Out of Census Research (1880-1910), Indiana Research and Using the IGI and Other Mormon Resources.

Why attend a seminar in Indiana if you live or research in western Kentucky? There is something to be learned at every seminar, workshop or lecture - no matter if it is in Indiana, Kentucky or any other state. The bonus is seeing what the vendors have for sale. This seminar always has vendors representing Indiana societies plus Willard Library has a table chock full of duplicate books covering almost all areas of the country and at a low price. Ye Olde Genealogy Shoppe of Indianapolis brings loads of books and charts and forms for every possible need. I'll be there with my books and often McDowell Publications of Utica, KY is represented. It's fun to see people, learn what's new in genealogical research, hear interesting speakers, and see if you win a door prize.

The cost is $25 if paid by 16 Oct 2007 or $30 after that or at the door. Checks should be payable to Tri-State Genealogical Society and mailed to Connie Conrad, 1014 E. Blackford Ave., Evansville, IN 47711. If you go, stop by my table and say "Hi."
