Have you registered yet for the Maine Genealogical Society Spring workshop?

Using Federal Records in Genealogical Research with John Philip Colletta
Saturday, April 23, 2011, 8am - 4pm
Winslow VFW Banquet & Conference Center

Have questions about how to find your ancestors in the Passenger Arrival Lists? What about finding their allusive naturalization records? Ever thought to use passport applications or Civil War draft registration records in your research?

Come find out more about these types of federal records and others. MGS is pleased to bring another national level genealogy speaker to Maine! Dr. Colletta is one of America's most popular genealogical presenters. Entertaining, knowledgeable and experienced, he has conducted genealogy workshops for over 20 years. He is the author of several books, including They Came in Ships - A Guide to Finding Your Immigrant Ancestor's Arrival Record.

The MGS spring workshop will be held on Saturday, April 23 at the Winslow VFW Banquet & Conference Center. The Conference Center is near Waterville and is located just a few miles from I-95.

Here is a link to the Conference facility website:
