I've been doing genealogy now for only 2 years and am totally hooked. I've seen ad's about genealogical or family history meetings or seminars put on by the pro's. Can someone tell me what these are like and why you would encourage people to attend? Are there costs? Also - is there a certain place to go on the web to see when one will be on your area? I am from Portland Oregon.
I'm very curious about it. People or articles are always talking about them, but I do not know what goes on there.
