FGS 2014


As we are about to cross the threshold into July – JULY, ALREADY?!? – time is running out for Early Bird registration pricing for FGS 2014. Don’ t miss out on the savings. Register today!

And while you’re there, consider applying that savings toward one of the many great luncheon programs. Conferences are physically demanding. Keep your strength up while enjoying featured speakers. Network with industry leaders, vendors and other conference goers as you relax and catch your breath after a morning jam packed with learning.

Or maybe you’re one of the genealogists who likes hands on learning. FGS 2014 offers several workshop programs that still have available seating.  Dive in depth with workshops on Mapping, DNA, Self Publishing and more!

Rather see the sites of the San Antonio area? In addition to Librarian’s Day, FGS 2014 has three special events featuring regional history, art and culture:

Evening at the Institute of Texan Cultures

Join FGS and local co-hosts for an evening of exploring Texan Culture. Includes BBQ dinner and air-conditioned transportation from conference hotel to and from event. ($35, pre-registration required)

Sponsored Tour to Panna Maria

by Cecile “Ceil” Wendt Jensen MA, CG℠


Sponsored by The Polish Mission of the Orchard Lake Schools

Join Cecile “Ceil” Wendt Jensen, MA, CG, in collaboration with the Polish American community in Texas, and travel by air conditioned coach to visit the historic settlement of Panna Maria, Texas, the oldest Polish permanent settlement in America. Founded by Silesian Poles in 1854 and led by Father Leopold Moczygemba, they replicated their Polish village with the establishment of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and the oldest private Polish school in the United States, St. Joseph’s School. The school now houses a museum which displays furniture and items used by the early Polish settlers, artifacts used in the church, family photos and a sign showing the documented surnames of the immigrants who came to Texas in 1854, 1855 and 1856. The tour includes Visitors Center, Snoga’s Store, St. Joseph School Museum, and Immaculate Conception Church. Fee includes travel arrangements and boxed meal. ($25 fee; pre-registration required)

“A Night in Old San Antonio”

Join FGS as we celebrate the rich history of San Antonio in the historical art village of La Villita (Mexican buffet, cash-bar, and air-conditioned transportation to/from conference hotel included). ($35, pre-registration required)

FGS 2014 promises to be an amazing conference. I couldn’t be more excited about it myself and I sure hope to see you there. Take advantage of Early Bird Pricing! Register today!
