WAGS Annual Seminar

Each year, WAGS holds an all-day genealogy seminar. Both members and non-members are welcome to attend. The seminar is held on the last Saturday of January, from 9am to 3pm. We invite a nationally-known speaker to deliver four lectures on various topics. In consultation with the speaker, the lecture topics are selected by the Seminar Committee to cover a wide range of subjects that we believe will be of interest to our attendees.
Our 37th Annual Seminar will be held on January 25th, 2020!  Our WAGS 2020 Seminar page will replace this page by early October. 
WAGS is excited to announce that our speaker for the upcoming seminar will be DearMYRTLE, the nom de plume of genealogist Pat Richley-Erickson.  For more information about our speaker, click here.
The Seminar Committee will  announce our speaker and topics this summer, once they have been finalized an confirmed.  Registration will be open by early October 2019.  Please check our website in September for updated information and to register for our 2020 seminar.
