The national genealogy speakers on staff at the Gregath Company, Incorporated would like to help you be a successful family researcher.  In this economy, many researchers are forgoing attending these types of events because they feel the cost of attendance is too high. While the information you gain and networking available pays dividends far into the future, Gregath Company understands this way of thinking. We hope a day of free seminars and face to face networking will enrich everyone’s lives and researching skills.

July 15 Deadline for Retreat on the lake 2009 Monday, Jun 29 2009 

Lake Shore DawnRetreat on the lake 2009 registration deadline is fast approaching. If you have put off reserving your space until the last minute, now is the time. July 15, 2009 is when we will decide if the retreat is viable in the 2009 economy. Originally, this was the discount reservation date. However, if budgets can not be stretched to include discount registrations, we know most can not include the luxury of a full price retreat.
