The FGS conference is just around the corner, have you started to think about your list?  Most people are thinking about the naughty and nice list.  For those of us attending FGS Conference we are also thinking about a to-do list for the Family History Library in Salt Lake City while writing out those cards.  In those moments of less chaos I’ll gathering my list of classes, and speakers, and events and start planning my days.

I didn’t plan my trip to the library out very well… I didn’t account for falling down the “rabbit hole” when I found a whole page of ancestors and lost track of what I was looking for.  You know you have done this before….

As a newbie to last year’s conference, I didn’t know who’s who so planning a class by who the instructor was really was not on my list.  I wanted to take things that were going to get me more help in areas that I thought I needed.  Remember there was so much to see, so much to do.  I did not have a back up plan last year for classes I planned but were full.  On a lighter note, there were also products and services that I was interested in, as well as meeting the presenters in the Expo Hall during their downtime.

The information from the conference gave me resources to listen to webinars, and links to blogs.  This helped fine tune my subject areas, but also helped prepare for next year. I’ll be looking for more advanced classes.  This will give me time also to volunteer with FGS.

Upon registering for the FGS Conference, I’ve already planned luncheons. Now I just have to see what classes and other events that I can attend.  Have you heard…. Alex Boye and the One World Children’s Choir will be preforming at FGS Conference! Check out the list of activities on the FGS Conference page.
