Hello from the 2005 FGS/UGA Conference in Salt Lake City. It has been a great week here so far. The reaction to the next conference being in Boston has been terrific, too. Lots of people have indicated that they plan to attend.

Some are saying they have always wanted to visit Boston, others want to visit relatives in New England, and others say they need to do research in the area. Some of the people at this conference who are from New England are excited about having this major conference in their own backyard.

I am Paula Stuart-Warren, the National Publicity Chair for this Boston conference. Over the next weeks you will be hearing from other members of our energetic conference committee. I am from Minnesota. The Conference Co-chairs are from Boston and Texas, the Program Chair is from Florida, the Exhibit Chairs are from Illinois and Texas.

Everyone is hard at work on the conference and we have been passing out stickers that say "FGS Boston 2006." We have two booths here to publicize the conference and a beautiful banner showing the Boston skyline.

We have maps and brochures that show the Hynes Convention Center which is in the same indoor complex at the host hotel, the Sheraton Boston. We are also showing people how close the Boston Public Library, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and other research repositories are to the convention center.

We know some of you readers are here in Salt Lake City with us this week, and for those who aren't, we wish you were here.

In the coming days we will tell you more about the convention center and host hotel in Boston. Check back often!
