FYI-IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED JUST HIT THE DELETE BUTTON!
I am a regular subscribed member of this list for my own genealogy research
in addition to which I am an adjunct instructor for genealogy at Angelina
College in Lufkin, Texas. As such I have organized this genealogy
conference for the past six summers. This year I am pleased to working with
Melvin C. Johnson of Nacogdoches, Texas, who is another adjunct instructor
Angelina College. We are both available to give programs to other groups as
long as we can talk about the genealogy conference at Angelina College.
Contact us privately for topics and fees.

Please do not try to register before June 1st! This is a regular college
continuing education class and will only be entered into the college
computer system with the summer session classes. Your check earlier than
June 1st will only be returned to you. Staff is not allowed to hold over
Anything that anyone can do to spread the word about this upcoming
conference would be greatly appreciated. All Texas colleges have tightened
their budgets. If enrollment is not at least at past year's levels, the
conference is in grave danger of not being approved for 2004.
This conference is a real asset to the genealogy community because it is
the only one like it at a public supported college west of the Mississippi
that we know about. We are fortunate that the college administration agreed
to sponsor it for another year. IF for some reason you are not able to
attend the conference this summer, but think it is still a great idea, you
might care to e-mail a message of support to Dr. Frederick W. Kanke,
Vice-president of Community Services at Angelina College,
