This is the last call for pre-registrations for the conference Oct 30 at
Nebraska Methodist College in Omaha. You can download a flyer at
_www.gogsmembers.wordpress.com_ (http://www.gogsmembers.wordpress.com) if you haven't
received one, or misfiled it.
The conference topics:
Land and property records
Organizing collected genealogy materials (you know, the xerox copies &
memorabilia in something other than the "Pilot method: pile it here, pile it
Telling ancestral stories
Using digital cameras to help record genealogical data & scenes
We have received two large donations of genealogy materials, and things
that are duplicated at the W. Dale Clark Library will be sold at very
economical prices at the conference. We have, among other things, a large
collection of New England Historical & Genealogical Society Journals, to be sold in
complete years where available--at very low prices considering what a
membership costs. (Most items are one set for the time period, so you can't
"wait to decide" and count on it being there.)
There will be lunch available at a nominal price, or you can go out to eat
(lots of restaurants/fast food places near by), a bake sale, white elephant
sale, etc. We always have fun.
You can check out the web site or email me with questions. Early
registrations get a discount, and, of course, society members get a bigger discount
over regular prices. (We're into the new fiscal year by 3 months, so you
haven't missed much if you decide to join now.)
We hope to see you there.

1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.

7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
