As promised in the Gathering 2012 Announcement, the Association held its twelfth Gathering September 21-23, 2012, in Gallipolis, Ohio. Some 42 persons were in attendance for the main sessions, with 5 more who came to the Saturday banquet.
At its meeting at the conclusion of the Gather, the EFA Board of Directors made several decisions of note. More information will be forthcoming, but two special items can be mentioned here:
Ewing Archives to Move
As we discussed in the General Meeting, the Archives Committee recommended that we accept the offer of the Allen County Public Library, Ft. Wayne, IN, to house and digitize the extensive materials that EFA has been keeping at the Cecil County Historical Society. The Board has accepted that recommendation and the transfer is beginning. Chancellor and Board Chair Wally Ewing has led the way with his contribution of his family record records to ACPL. (See them at www.genealogycenter.info/search_ewing.php. ) It will take several years for the digitization to be completed.
The 2014 EFA Gathering will be in Ft. Wayne, Indiana!
The EFA will return to Ft. Wayne for the first time since 2006 for its 13th biennial meeting. The Allen County Public Library will provide meeting space.
Star photographers David N. Ewing and Martin S. Ewing took many shots of the Gathering events. They are available in two formats for viewing - a slide show and an album.

We are using Google's Picasa photo service, which adds some extraneous material about the host account (Martin Ewing's). Please ignore that part!
