Even in our technological age, the value of attending a genealogy conference in person is phenomenal. Nothing quite matches the chance to learn directly from the experts and network with people of similar interests.
FEEFHS is committed to providing information to our followers about upcoming educational opportunities related to Eastern European research. If your society has an event to add to our calendar, please send description and website link to .
