The Program Committee for the 4th Annual Northeast Florida GenealogyConference met today to begin assigning the programs into the various roomsat the LDS Church building in Orange Park, FL.Great programs are on tap with something for every interest, and somesuper presenters. We are bringing back several speakers from years past, andhave a few new ones too. Friday night will feature a short Key-Note pro-gram, followed by table discussions and light foods, in a social setting in thegymnasium. It will be an excellent time to mingle with the presenters, other participants, staff and vendors.In response to suggestions from last years conference, Saturday’s hourswill be shortened a bit and the lunch hour extended, so there will be time for visiting with the vendors. A box-lunch will be served.which should reducethe long lines. The registration packet will contain short descriptions of the programs and mini-bios of the presenters.We feel sure you will enjoy a great time with folks with fellow interests.
