Midwest Geneablogger Get Together

We talked about it, we tweeted about it and it is finally planned.

The midwest area geneabloggers will be having a get together on 24 Mar 2012 and we hope you will be available to join us. For this get together, we will be meeting in Fort Wayne, IN. You can spend the day researching in the ACPL and the evening having fun with all your genea buddies!

The evenings festivities will be hosted in the home of Tina Lyons of Gen Wish List and her husband, the plan is a pizza party and I believe we agreed to a price of $5 per person to share the cost. If you would like to bring something to add to the party (dessert or drinks), that would be greatly appreciated as well.

If you are looking to stay the night or even the weekend, I have secured some rooms at Hampton Inn – Dupont Road, from 23 Mar – 25 Mar. Right now, the rooms secured are all 2 queen size beds, that will sleep up to 4 adults. Pricing is $87.12, tax not included, per night. For two nights, including tax, it would be $198.63. If you share the room with 3 other adults, the room would be $49.66 each. Not bad! With the room, there is free wifi (woo hoo, we can blog, tweet and check facebook) and free breakfast.

If you are not interested in both nights, that is ok. To book a room, call me at 773-589-0198 or you can also email me at toconnell@cruiseplanners.com. A credit card is needed to hold the room.

To get the room at this great rate, we must have you booked by 29 Feb, otherwise we lose the price. Also, when calling to book, it would be helpful to know if you have a group that will be staying with you and who will be a part of that group.

I hope that you will be able to join us, it’s never a dull moment when you get a bunch of genealogists together.

A special thanks to Tina for opening her home to this group, we greatly appreciate it.

If you have any questions, you can leave a comment on this post, email me at above email address or you can email Tina at genwishlist@gmail.com.

  4. Hi – First thing I’m going to do tomorrow is check my work schedule. I should be able to rearrange things to make this my Friday off if it’s not already. Also, I can bring cookies for the pizza party. And let me be clear, these are the best cookies in the world – my dad makes them! I can bring several kinds – ALL of his cookies are the best in the world. I’ll let you know soon. I’m sure it will be a blast!

  6. Oh! Wish I could attend. I just recently moved from the mid-west to the Pacific Northwest; just a little too far to travel. Have a great time!

    1. Joleen, ohhh maybe one day we will have one out that way to get everyone in that area together.

  7. I’ll still be “out west” in March so will not be able to attend, though I wish that I could!! It’s so cool of you and Tina to plan and host this meetup. Perhaps next time…

    1. Sheri,

  11. Well that’s too far east for me. I must be the western edge of “Midwest”. Maybe another time, will be out that way this summer some time. Have to take my baby girl to meet the relatives; some of them just don’t come west much (or at all).

    1. You will be missed Beth! Hopefully, next time will work out!

  13. […] Midwest Geneabloggers Meetup: Fort Wayne, IN No, this isn’t a conference, but it is important! It will not only be a chance for me to visit with my friends but it will also be a time of personal research for me. Wait…. that doesn’t sound familiar? You know, research! It’s that thing that we got into the business for but never seem to have time to complete. For ourselves. Ever. 🙂 I’m going with only personal research in hand, and I am looking forward to it! This conference will be one part girls’ weekend, one part networking, and one part research therapy! […]
