Abrams Genealogy Seminar 2008

The Library of Michigan (Lansing) has announced the program for the Abrams Genealogy Seminar which will be held Friday and Saturday, July 25th and 26th, 2008. Included among an impressive group of speakers will be, Kris Rzepczynski presenting:
The Library of Michigan is digitizing its collection of Michigan death records from 1897 to 1920. Totaling nearly 1 million records, these images will be free and fully searchable on the in-the-works Seeking Michigan Web site. See what content will be available and catch a glimpse of what the site will become as additional genealogical resources are added.
and my genea-buddy Ceil Wendt Jensen presenting:
Newspapers are a great resource for information on the life and times of your ancestors. Follow a family for three generations in community and regional newspapers. Ideas are included on how to use current global newspapers to obtain information.
I am delighted to see that a number of the presenters are covering topics for the more experienced genealogy researchers who are looking to add more than just names and dates to the family tree. This looks to be a very interesting program!

The fee for this 2-day seminar is $40 and a box lunch will be provided on Saturday. Registration begins one hour before each day's event. For all the details visit here.
