ISFHWE Excellence in Writing Winner coming to Prescott Arizona - Colleen Fitzpatrick

Colleen Fitzpatrick will be the guest speaker at the NAGS May 22, 2010 monthly meeting in Prescott, Arizona.  Ms. Fitzpatrick will be speaking to us about DNA and its use in our personal genealogy as well as her many success stories using DNA techniques.  This will be an all day seminar and is open to anyone interested.  The cost is $35.00 until May 15th, then increases to $40.00. 

Imagine my pleasant surprise when I read Ms. Fitzpatrick was the 1st place winner of the ISFHWE Excellence in Writing Contest for 2010 in category II, Published Articles.  The ISFHWE is the International Society of Family History Writers and Editors.  The beginnings of this organization began on May 13, 1987 when the Council of Genealogy Columnists was formed at a meeting held in conjunction with the 1987 NGS conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.  As the organization grew and embraced a more global role, the name was changed to International Society of Family History Writers and Editors in May of 2000.

This should be a wonderful day spent learning a great deal about DNA and how to use it in my genealogical research.

If there's anyone out there who wants to attend this seminar check out the NAGS website for the registration form.
