Call for Papers

for the Fairfax Genealogical Society 2018-2019 Programs
The Fairfax Genealogical Society will begin accepting speaker proposals for its 2018-19 programs on 15 November 2017. Specific information regarding the proposal solicitations will be posted here on 1 November 2017. Please check back for all the details.
Proposals will be accepted for monthly general meetings September 2018 through May 2019, monthly education classes September 2018 through May 2019, a one-day fair to be held 27 October 2018, and a two-day conference to be held 5-6 April 2019. All events are held in Fairfax County, which is in Northern Virginia, just west of Washington, D.C.
The Society is always looking for new and exciting topics that span the range of genealogy and family history research. Topics may include any facet of genealogical research. Subjects should draw on the lecturer’s areas of expertise, yet be broad enough to appeal to a general audience. The deadline for submitting proposals for any of these events will be 1 March 2018.
The Fairfax Genealogical Society was founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1974 to provide educational opportunities to the genealogical community; to promote cooperation and support among genealogists; to encourage sound genealogical methods, standards of accuracy, and scholarly research; and to aid those doing research in the national capital area. The Society has over 500 members, who meet for lectures, educational programs, workshops and field trips.
