Blogger of Honor -- Illionois Family History Expo

We are just 2 weeks away from the upcoming Illinois Family History Expo! I wanted to let everyone know that I am one of the Bloggerrs of Honor! Please share the word. At our last Expo in Sacramento, California, I met several people after the Expo who express disappointment that they didn't know it was happening. As you know, there are few ways to communicate directly with the genealogical community, so take time to share this news with your non-Internet genealogical friends.

The Family History Expos will be coming to Springfield, Illinois August 3-4, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza – Springfield. Join us to meet me and other bloggers, presenters, and see the exhibits.  You are most cordially invited to come on over and spend some time with us at the Expo. I am really looking forward to speaking with you!

It’s not too late to take advantage of early online registration, a savings of $30, until August 2nd , $69 today $99 at the door.

The keynote address will be given by Bernard E. Gracy, Jr, External CTO and VP Business Development, Volly at Pitney Bowes.
