Upcoming Event : Michiana Genealogy Fair 2011

The South Bend Area Genealogical Society (SBAGS) is hosting their annual Michiana Genealogy Fair, Saturday, March 19, 2011, at the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library, Mishawaka, Indiana.

The event features noted national speaker and author Loretto Szucs, Executive Editor of Ancestry.com, who will present two lectures:  1.  Research Your Ancestry at Castle Garden and Ellis Island; 2.  What's New and How to Best Use Ancestry.com

In addition, there will be large vendor areas where dozens of genealogical & historical societies, book & services vendors, and publishers will display their wares for viewing and sale.  The event kicks off at 9 a.m. and will continue until 4 p.m.  Admission is $6, but you can print out the event flier which includes a $1.00 coupon towards admission.

Having attended several of Michiana Genealogy Fairs over the years, I can safely say that it is always a day well spent.  Where else can you hear two top-notch lectures and be able to wander at your leisure through displays which will offer goods & services at special event prices for only $5 or $6 admission?  I hope to see you there!
