The National Genealogical Society (NGS) annual conference is just around the corner (May 4-7) in Fort Lauderdale, and if you aren’t able to attend in person, there are still ways you can learn from this outstanding gathering of genealogical speakers.
Sign Up for Streaming Sessions
Hurry! The deadline is May 3. NGS is live streaming two tracks: one about land records and the other about methods for success. Each track consists of five sessions by nationally-renowned speakers. Live streams will take place on Thursday, May 5 (land records) and Friday, May 6 (methods), but continuing access is provided through August 7. Although the deadline for signing up for live-stream is May 3, there is also an option to purchase the video recordings anytime between May 4 and July 31 for post-conference online viewing. NGS members receive a discount, and all persons who purchase video access receive a pdf version of the conference syllabus – a real value as it contains notes and handouts from many of the 150+ presentations at the conference as a whole.
