The Ancestors Road Show will take place as part of FGS Boston on Friday, 1
September (9-5) and Saturday, 2 September (9-3). In a nutshell, FGS
attendees will have the opportunity to sign up to spend 20 minutes with a
skilled genealogist to review and ask for direction on one family history
roadblock that they are struggling with. Attendees will be able to sign up
for the event on Thursday and the sign-up will continue as long as spaces
We are looking for professional genealogists with all types of backgrounds
and specialties and are asking that each person commit a minimum of one
hour to the event. The scheduling of the genealogists will be done in one
hour time blocks. We are also looking for triage volunteers who will be
responsible for the overall running of the event such as on-site scheduling,
answering questions and giving quick research advice.
If you are willing to help please forward the following information to

---You will also need to provide a brief biography or career description and
