TEXAS Genealogy

Genealogy Conference Opens Friday: "The Texas State Genealogical Society will hold its 47th Annual Conference on Friday and Saturday at the Holiday Inn Select, 5701 S. Broadway Ave., Tyler, East Texas Genealogy Society publicity chairman Scott Fitzgerald said. The featured speakers are George G. Morgan and Drew Smith, who are also known as 'The Genealogy Guys.' They produce an hour-long podcast on genealogy subjects each week that can be downloaded and listened to on computer or MP3 player. The ETGS is the local host for this conference."

Attendees will be invited to submit their genealogy problems or brickwalls, and if chosen, to record their question and the "Genealogy Guys'" answer for broadcast on future podcasts.

The Lone Star Chapter of the Association of Professionals Genealogists will offer free 15 minutes consultations for attendees on their genealogy related problems, Fitzgerald said.

A registration form can be found at their Web site and should be brought to the conference.
