The 2024 Conference Committee is already
hard at work planning the
Fall Conference.
 
 
A "genealogy track" and a "transportation track" will focus on various ways our ancestors arrived in, or passed through, Illinois.
 
 
The "unique location" of this event is one we will all love!
 
 
Mark your calendars now, and watch for more news!
 
 
Further details will be available soon.
