Last week’s Forget-Me-Not Hour radio show focused on the National Genealogical Society (NGS) and its annual conference. NGS Vice President Julie Miller joined me on the show and talked about NGS’s long history of genealogy education. Among the educational tools the NGS uses to help genealogists trace their family history are the NGS Quarterly with its focus on research methodology, the NGS Magazine with its articles on various types of records, and webinars that can be accessed right from your own computer.
The annual Family History Conference is the pinnacle of the educational outreach that the National Genealogical Society does. This year the conference will be held May 9-12 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Among the highlights will be the keynote address opening the conference on Wednesday, May 9. Patricia Moseley Van Skaik will show us a new approach to our ancestors’ lives through digital images of the world-renowned 1848 Cincinnati daguerreotype. In addition to ten tracks of classes (including military records, German research, Photos and Techonology) each day, an evening at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and at the Public Library in Cincinnati are also among the conference’s activities.
This is a conference not to be missed. Hear more about the NGS and the 2012 Family History Conference from Julie Miller right here.
