Connect. Explore. Refresh. 2015 FGS.

Prompt  #1

 Connect. Explore. Refresh.

~ Hello Everyone ~
 From your 2015 FGS Ambassador

Myself; True and my Fellow Ambassadors are Excited and Proud to keep you Connected. To Explore all the possibilities attending FGS. To Refresh your Minds and Work as you go back home to do the Real Work we all do and love, Genealogy. That is the Theme for 2015 FGS Conference. 

I can't wait to "Connect" to like minded folks in Genealogy. All those we meet online, at genealogy conferences meetings, in different social media groups, FGS gives you a chance to Connect with one another in person. I am getting my feet wet for my 1st FGS conference in 2016. I appreciate the opportunity for 2015.  This will be a great lead in for me to learn and Connect. See the faces with the names. I'll have experience and will be ready to hit the ground running! 

Explore! All the Speakers as they present!, all the possibilities of learning more research tips, skills, vendors, latest software. All kinds of research Goodies! Also how the volunteers will help you Explore and assist you getting around at FGS Conference in The Expo Hall! Having both FGS Conference and RootsTech all in 1 roof for the very 1st time! Take a Look around at the above links to familiarize "What's Going On"? at the Conference, and hope you Join FGS2015!
 What excitement! 

The meaning of Refresh to me for 2015 FGS Conference will be about Refreshing your mind above all else! Your research, refresh your goals as you take back home all that was felt and seen. What you learned along the few days? We all need this boost of feeling Refreshed once again to start anew and continue on our work and business of Genealogy.
