I just returned from an enjoyable two days in Terre Haute, Indiana, participating in the 2014 Seminar and Conference of the Indiana Genealogical Society. Keynote speaker Judy Russell presented four engrossing workshops, and the second track by local area specialists was also well attended.
The local host Wabash Valley Genealogy Society furnished numerous services and many great volunteers to make the event run smoothly, and the Indiana State University venue was unique and functional. The conference attendance exceeded expectations, and most attendees rated the experience as excellent.
Next year's conference will be held April 15-16, 2016, at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne. Planning is already underway.
During the mid-day IGS business meeting, an interesting handout, shown below, illustrated some of the progress the Society has made in the last year.
