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 , FEEFHS conference administrator.

Returning to a full conference format in 2014, this program focuses on the records, tools, and methodologies needed to conduct research in Eastern European records, online, in microfilm, and on site. Pre-conference workshops will provide additional opportunity for researchers to track down their village of origin, learn the basics of Cyrillic, and take advantage of a handful of available one on one consultations. Country tracks for 2014 will include Germany, Poland, Russia, and Austria, with additional courses on Russo-German research, Croatia, and hopefully the Czech Republic. A wide variety of additional courses will provide essential information for research both online and on-site.
