Fairfax (VA) Genealogical Society

Announcement:  2011-2012 Calls for Papers Press Release


The Fairfax Genealogical Society is accepting proposals for its General
Meetings, Education Classes, Fall Fair, and Spring Conference for 2011-2012.
All events are held in Fairfax County which is in northern Virginia, just
west of Washington, D.C.  Please see the complete Calls for Papers at
www.fxgs.org/ callforpapers.htm for the exact details and dates.  All
submissions must be received between 01 October 2010 and 01 February 2011.


Topics may include any genealogical subject such as court records, ethnic
research, military records, methodology, migration, writing, colonial
research, or beginning, intermediate, or advanced research.  No preference
is given to topics related to Virginia since many attendees are non-natives;
however, Virginia topics are certainly welcome.  We will consider proposals
from a single speaker for both the Thursday night General Meeting and the
following Saturday Education Class/Fall Fair/or Conference; topics do not
have to be related.  Proposals for remotely presented lectures (General
Meetings and Education Classes, only) will be considered, but presenter is
responsible for providing any services or software needed other than an
Internet connection (i.e. GoToMeeting or similar services)


Speakers will receive an honorarium.  Travel, per diem, board, and other
expenses can NOT be provided and are the responsibility of the speaker.


The Fairfax Genealogical Society has over 500 members.  General Meetings
usually have over 100 people in attendance while Saturday Education Classes
have 50-60.  The Fall Fair normally has an attendance of 100-150 people.  It
also includes one or two book vendors and several informational booths from
other societies or groups.  For the last several years, attendance at the
Spring Conference has been about 260.  Also, there are usually 15-20 vendors
selling books, software, and other items of interest to genealogists.


Exact dates, requirements, and submission guidelines are posted at
www.fxgs.org/ callforpapers.htm.  Questions should be e-mailed to
CallForPapers at fxgs.org.
