Let’s get HOUSTON and CLAYTON LIBRARY – and maybe even YOU -- on national TV!

The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) is holding its 2014 conference, August 27th through August 30th in San Antonio, Texas. Clayton Library Friends gave away two Single Day, FGS 2014 Conference Registrations to two lucky CLF members. All active 2014 CLF members, except members of the CLF Executive Board, were eligible to win one of the registration fees, each valued at $85.00. Anyone who joined before June 1, 2014 was automatically entered into the random drawing. The drawing took place on June 9, 2014.

After much drawing, and phone calls to see if the person was going to the Conference, two winners were found: Doris Kosub and Loren (or) Mary Martin. Congratulations to both of you.

Even if you did not win, and would like to go, more information can be found at
https://www.fgsconference.org/ then click on Registration. Registrations postmarked or online before July 1 will receive the discounted price.

The Clayton Library Friends will host a table at the FGS Conference Society Showcase in San Antonio August 27-30. All members are encouraged to attend the conference! We would appreciate your help in manning the table for our society. Please contact Elani Hantel at elanihantel@gmail.com  if you are going to San Antonio and would like to join us!
