This past Friday I attended the Florida State Genealogical Society in Gainesville. Although the conference was three days I was only able to attend on the first day. Am I glad I did! In just one day I attended three lectures covering topics that included court house research, how to conduct interviews for family research, and legal issues related to genealogy. The evening's panel discussion on technologies that can be used by genealogists proved very helpful.
It's not always easy to find the time to attend a conference, but I was reminded once again how valuable investing in a little training and re-tooling can be.
