Update on the Conference Hotel

Michael J. Leclerc, Conference Co-Chair of 2006 FGS/NEHGS has an update on the host hotel, the Boston Sheraton

The 2006 FGS/NEHGS Conference, Birthplace of American Genealogy, is attracting participants from all over the world. Just a note to let you know that the overall room block at the conference hotel is almost full and that the block for Tuesday and Wednesday is already full. But there is good news . . .

We are working to increase the number of rooms that will be available, and hope to have that in place over the next couple of days. It was completely unexpected that we would fill up this quickly and will let you all know as soon as we can about the availability of additional room nights. On the plus side, it is kind of nice to have the problem of so many people booking into the conference hotel. :-)

The Sheraton Boston at 39 Dalton Street is the conference hotel. It is conveniently attached to the Hynes Convention Center through the Shops at Prudential Center. The conference registration, lecture halls, and the Exhibit Hall will all be in the Hynes Convention Center. All of the meal events for the conference will be held at the Sheraton. Rooms are $159 per night for single/double and $40 per night for each additional person. This is an incredible savings over the regular room rate of $299 per night.

To make a reservation, contact the Sheraton at 617-236-2000. Be sure to identify yourself as part of the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2006 Conference to get the discount.
