The Massachusetts Genealogical Council Annual Meeting and Seminar will take place on July 21, 2012, at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. The MGC Program Co-Directors are finalizing arrangements with speakers for six jam-packed tracks on ethnic-specific topics, including two advanced level workshops. We have a really exciting line-up of presenters, many of them nationally known experts in the field.

Our featured speaker will be Loretto "Lou" Szucs, FUGA, Vice President of Community Relations at Lou is a highly respected and much loved author, editor and genealogist and we are thrilled that she will be our luncheon speaker and present two lectures. More details at a later date!
