Are you attending the FGS Conference at the end of the month? I’m giving two WWII talks at the conference, and I’m the featured author at AncestorStuff’s vendor table. There are a few things you should know.
New Program Launch
Learn about the new program I’m launching to help American Genealogists work with European WWII grave adopters and researchers.
Meet Me and Have Questions Answered
AncestorStuff is exclusively selling my WWII Research books before the conference. FGS Conference attendees can order my books from AncestorStuff in advance through August 10th for pickup at table #516. I will be appearing at the table throughout the conference to sign books and answer research questions. For customers picking up the book at the conference, use code FGS at checkout to get free shipping. If you miss the pre-order, I will have a limited number of books available at the conference.
Visit us at AncestorStuff’s exhibitor table #516. Pick up a complementary gift and meet me. I’ll be at the vendor table:
- Thursday 10:00 – noon and 2:00-5:00
- Friday from 9:00-11:30
- Saturday from 9:00-11:30

A continuation of “Finishing the Story,” we will explore the records available to tell the stories of those who died in service.
