Genealogical Speakers & Programs List

The Michigan Genealogical Council is in the process of re-creating an updated Genealogical Speakers List, containing speakers' names, contact information, topics that they speak on, and the societies or organizations that they've given those presentations to over the past 2 years. 
However, this list will only be as strong as the information we get from societies, so we're asking that societies please send an email to Katherine R Willson, Vice-President of Michigan Genealogical Council, at moonswings@gmail.com, listing your program schedules for the past 2 years (2015-2016 and 2014-2015), as well as the contact information for the speakers you had.

When this list is finalized, it will be shared with our member societies - it is our hope that societies will contact one another for feedback on speakers.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email Katherine at moonswings@gmail.com.
Thank you for your willingness to share your speaker's information with us.
