Luncheons at the Conference

A wonderful feature of the FGS Conferences is lunchtime. Regular lectures and workshops are not scheduled at this time so that speakers and registrants can take a break. We do need to eat to keep our minds sharp for the second half of the day. You will get more from the lectures and will be able to do a better job of shopping in the Exhibit Hall. One of my reasons for attending the luncheons is that I know in advance I have a seat for lunch and don’t have to run around to find a restaurant without the usual lunchtime crowds. All the conference meal events are open to anyone; you do have to purchase a ticket. Different organizations sponsor the luncheons and arrange for the speaker. Ticket holders sit with other family historians; the discussions are enlightening and followed by the speaker’s presentation. The menu is the same for all luncheons on a given day; those menus will be posted to this blog shortly.
