Countdown to the 110th

Posted by:

Today is the last day to reserve your place at the 110th Anniversary Celebration, this Saturday, February 9, 2008, at the Concord Hilton. You won’t want to miss this special day-long program with Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, who will present four seminars:

Tales from The Photo Detective
Identifying and Dating Family Photos
Preserving Family Photographs
Reading Immigrant Clues in Photos

$45.00 includes all seminars and lunch.

CGS News Editor, Jane Hufft, has organized a special silent auction as part of the festivities. Donated items include a set of champagne glasses in a carrying case, a basket of Irish coffee glasses and accoutrements, two sets of framed botanical prints, Fleetwood Mac wines, a handmade baby blanket, a set of two Malaysian baskets and much, much more.

The society is also honored to announce that our event is the book launch of Maureen Taylor’s newest title, Capturing Memories (Your Family Story in Photographs). All of Maureen’s books will be available for sale at the event.

President Jane Lindsey has been planning a couple more surprises for the day, including a special commemorative souvenir designed by the CGS News production editor, Lois Elling.

Back in December, George Morgan and Drew Smith, The Genealogy Guys, read the press release of our event on their podcast. George gave Maureen this glowing recommendation:

If you’ve never heard Maureen speak about preservation of photographs, identifying photographs, identifying time frames… you’re going to find this a tremendous, tremendous session.
