I have been a member of Family History Society of Arizona for about 2.5 years. I go to the monthly meetings and to the annual meeting. Yesterday was the annual meeting for 2012 and the guest speaker was Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems.
It was a wonderful day!
I learned lots! I did some networking, answered questions for someone just starting a blog and all in all had a good time. More important than having a good time and learning is the motivation and inspiration you recieve to keep working on your family history.
That is a wonderful benefit of your local society. There are more, so check it out!
I might not make it to the 1500s on my ancestors but I can make sure what I have is good and accurate information and pass it on to my decendents in an interesting manner to keep or get them interested in their own family history.
