Last month The Legal Genealogist said it’s been a bit crazed around here.
Now you know one big reason why: the move to Virginia is coming up fast.
But genealogy events proceed apace and, as always, I want to invite you to come along, to the extent possible, on the trip…
Here’s an overview of what’s coming up in September, and we’ll go ahead and take a peek at October.

And then The Legal Genealogist takes a break — and heads Down Under to visit friends, sightsee a bit, and present in November at the fabulous Family History Down Under 2022 event in Castle Hill, near Sydney, Australia.
Come on out and join us, if you can, for one or more of these events and note, in many cases, that registration will be free or at a reduced cost to members of the host society — and some are limited to members only… There are some reaaaaaaally good reasons for joining genealogical societies… Just sayin’…
