With a Little Help From Our Friends

The Beatles knew what it took to make a difference--friends. A lot of genealogical friends are coming to Boston in a couple of weeks for FGS, but we'd like to make this the biggest genealogy event EVER. You can help us! All you have to do is tell two of your friends about the conference. They might not know about it. As you know, attending a conference is a great way for anyone involved in family history to meet like minded individuals and have fun. If your friends need convincing try economics. It's a dollars and sense issue.
Read on to see how you can entice them:
  • Amtrak is offering a is offering a 10% discount on the lowest available fare to Boston, MA between August 27 – September 5, 2006.
  • It's not too late to get a hotel room! Additional rooms at the Sheraton Boston are now available at the conference discount of $159.00 single/double and $40.00 for each additional person. That's approximately $100.00 off the usual room rate. To reserve a room at the Sheraton, contact the reservations line at 1-800-325-3535. Identify yourself as part of the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2006 Conference when calling.
  • Attending the conference is cheaper and easier than traveling the world looking for your long-lost cousin. Vendors and speakers from major repositories in England, Ireland, Canada, and the United States will be on hand. You can check out the list of exhibitors or take a peek at the program.

All it takes to make this conference a spectacular event is a few more genealogists. Let's turn it into a challenge. If each and everyone one of us tells two friends we could double the number of attendees. So, how many of your friends can you convince to come to Boston?
