Linking the Genealogical Community
Introduction
The Federation of Genealogical Societies links the genealogical community by:

  • serving the needs of its member societies
  • providing products and services needed by member societies
  • marshaling the resources of its member organizations

FGS was founded in 1976 and represents the members of hundreds of genealogical societies.

FGS links the genealogical community by helping genealogical societies strengthen and grow. To do this, FGS publishes FORUM magazine, filled with articles pertaining to society management and genealogical news. FGS also publishes an extensive series of Society Strategy Papers, covering topics about effectively operating a genealogical society.

FGS also links the genealogical community through its annual conference -- four days of excellent lectures, including one full day devoted to society management topics.
