Central Indiana Family History Conference in September

This conference looks like it could be a nice one-day alternative for researchers in or near central Indiana unable to attend the FGS Conference in Fort Wayne next week.

From the
Indiana Genealogical Society Blog:

The 3rd Annual Central Indiana Family History Conference will be held Saturday, September 15 from 9 am to 4 pm at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 777 Sunblest Blvd. in Fishers, Indiana (east of Allisonville Road and north of 116th Street). The theme of the conference, which is sponsored by the Indianapolis, Indianapolis North, and Muncie Stakes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is "Family History Links: Connecting Generations."

Over 30 workshops will be offered, as well as various genealogy-related displays. Registration is free. There will be a lunch available for $4. Copies of the syllabus will also be available--CD copies will be $1, printed copies will be $6.To register for the conference, or for more information, visit http://www.cifhc.org

The list of classes includes sessions for beginners as well as advanced researchers. Topics include: New FamilySearch, FamilySearch Indexing, using the Internet for research, Podcasts and RootsTelevision, as well as organizing, archiving and writing your family history. There are from 5 to 7 classes to choose from each hour. Looks like there is something available for every interest. I thought about going but then remembered that the GSWC has a workshop scheduled the same day at the South Whitley Library. I'm giving a presentation on Internet Resources for Genealogy so I guess I have to be there instead. Can't be in two places at once.
