Call for Proposals for the Fairfax Genealogical Society 2013-14 Programs


(Fairfax, Virginia)—The Fairfax Genealogical Society is pleased to announce that it is currently accepting speaker proposals for its 2013-14 programs. Proposals are being sought for monthly general meetings September 2013 through May 2014, monthly education classes September 2013 through April 2014, a one-day fair to be held 26 October 2013, and a two-day conference to be held 28-29 March 2014. All events are held in Fairfax County, which is in northern Virginia, just west of Washington, D.C.

The Society is always looking for new and exciting topics that span the range of genealogy and family history research. Topics may include any facet of genealogical research. Subjects should draw on the lecturer’s areas of expertise, yet be broad enough to appeal to a general audience. Specific proposal requirements and a detailed description of the opportunities may be found at: http://fxgenealogical.blogspot.com/.

The deadline for submitting a proposal for any of these events is 1 March 2013.

The Fairfax Genealogical Society was founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1974 to provide educational opportunities to the genealogical community; to promote cooperation and support among genealogists; to encourage sound genealogical methods, standards of accuracy, and scholarly research; and to aid those doing research in the national capital area. The Society has over 500 members, who meet for lectures, educational programs, workshops and field trips. The Society also hosts two annual conferences. Additional information on the Society can be found on the Society’s web site (fxgs.org).
