The Fairfax Genealogical Society (FxGS) is currently accepting speaker proposals for its 2017-2018 programs. Proposals are being sought for monthly general meetings (September 2017 through May 2018), monthly education classes (September 2017 through May 2018), a one-day Fair (28 October 2017), and a two-day Spring Conference (6-7 April 2018). Details and dates of meetings and honoraria may be found on the Society’s website (www.fxgs.org) under “Call for Papers.”
The Society is always looking for new and exciting topics that span the range of genealogy and family history research. Topics may include any facet of genealogical research. Subjects should draw upon the lecturer’s areas of expertise, yet be broad enough to appeal to a general audience. The deadline for submitting proposals in 1 March 2017.
The Fairfax Genealogical Society was founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1974 to provide educational opportunities to the genealogical community; to promote cooperation and support among genealogists; to encourage sound genealogical methods, standards of accurate, and scholarly research; and to aid those doing research in the national capital area. The Society has over 500 members who meet for lectures, educational programs, workshops, and field trips. Further information about the Society and its upcoming events may be found on the web site (www.fxgs.org).
