Just a quick note to say that the Federation of East European Family History Societies conference scheduled for June in Edmonton has been cancelled.

With less than a month before the conference was due to begin, just a dozen people had registered. That's far lower than normal, and an unmistakeable sign that the conference should not go ahead. It's a shame in a way, because we had assembled a superb set of presenters on Eastern European genealogy. 

The FEEFHS conference in Winnipeg, on the August long weekend and a week before the SGGEE one in Edmonton, will go ahead as planned.

Anyone who signed up for the June conference will get a refund. Thanks to all those who supported the event, and a special thanks to the people in the Alberta Genealogical Society who did their best to make it work.

FEEFHS president
