FSGS Conference in November

The Florida State Genealogical Society (FSGS) conference is being held in Sarasota this year on 12 and 13 November. This is a large event and one that you may consider attending.

The PGS is a member of the FSGS. In a sense, the FSGS is a capstone society that includes as part of its membership all of the genealogy societies in the state of Florida. Each year the PGS sends a couple of board members to the conference to represent the PGS. In addition to attending the sessions at the conference, we display our banner, set up a display table with handouts about the PGS and its events, and produce a report that is then presented to the PGS membership at a general meeting or is published in our journal. Over the years, the FSGS has even given the PGS awards in recognition of its project and educational accomplishments.

You can get more information about the conference and what it entails at the FSGS website at http://flsgs.org/
