Find a Roommate for FGI

Looking for ways to offset costs of the Forensic Genealogy Institute, March 10-12, 2016? Why not share a hotel room with a fellow FGI attendee?

Hotel Details
FGI attendees can stay at the Menger hotel for the discounted room-rate of $135 plus tax (about 16.75%) per night. This price is good for single or double occupancy – and rooms with 2 queen-sized beds are available. Staying with a roommate decreases the per-night cost to just $67.50 plus tax!

Roommate-Finding Forum
If you are seeking a roommate, consider using the comments’ section below as a roommate-finding forum where interested individuals can post and/or respond to comments. If you already have a room reserved but would like a roommate, consider including that information in your post.

This post/forum is made available as a courtesy to FGI attendees who are seeking roommates. It is the responsibility of attendees to find roommates, and CAFG cannot assist in making roommate connections beyond providing and linking to this forum.

Reservation Details
The discounted room-rate applies to nights of March 9-13, 2016. Reservations can be made by calling the Menger hotel directly (832-724-6899); reference “The Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy” to receive the discounted rate. Reservations cancelled after 48 hours prior to arrival will be assessed one night’s room and tax.

To receive the discounted rate, reservations must be made by February 15, 2016. Reservations must be guaranteed with either a credit card or advanced deposit.
