The Wichita Genealogical Society is pleased to be hosting the "Discovering Who You Are" conference.
During the 2009 WGS Research Trip to the Family History Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, the group was privileged to be the first genealogical society to receive an invitation from Ancestry.com for a "behind the scenes tour" of their campus in Provo, Utah.
This tour sparked a partnership between WGS and Ancestry.com to index Kansas and local historical documents.
In return, Ancestry.com has accepted a WGS invitation to speak at our "Discovering Who You Are" conference in October. In addition, the National Archives and Records Administration has also agreed to participate.
WGS is grateful to have as a primary sponsor of this conference the Mid-America All-Indian Center for the use of their facilities. This is a wonderful example of community cooperation.
