FGS: 2015 conference promotion through blogging ambassadors

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was just received from our friends at the Federation of Genealogical Societies. Unlike previous conferences, the  2015 FGS annual conference will be held in the winter, in conjunction with RootsTech. If you were ever thinking about coming to Salt Lake City to do research at the world famous Family History Library, 2015 is the year to do it. Arrive a week early or stay a week after the conference. Attending the conference and applying what you'll learn right away is perhaps the best way to incorporate those new research ideas gleaned from the class sessions you attend. If you have a blog, you may also consider becoming a FGS Blog Ambassador.
