Exhibitor Profile - National Genealogical Society
The National Genealogical Society (NGS) will once again be participating in the FGS conference by sponsoring lectures, hosting a luncheon, and having a booth in the exhibit hall. NGS has been part of the FGS conference for well over twenty years!
This year NGS is sponsoring two lectures, which will be presented by Patricia Walls Stamm, CG, CGL: “Using Technology to Increase Your Genealogical Learning” (session F302) and “St. Louis – Then and Now” (session S407). Learn about new education opportunities at session F302 and the NGS Circulating Collection at session S407.
Barbara Vines Little, CG, FVGS, FNGS, will be the speaker at the NGS luncheon on Friday. If you are planning to attend the NGS Family History Conference, 7–10 May 2014, in Richmond, Virginia, you won’t want to miss her talk, “Preparing for a Research Trip to Virginia”. (You might get a sneak peak at lecture topics for 2014.)
The conference won’t be complete without a visit to the NGS booth in the exhibit hall. There will be a daily door prize, including a free course on CD-ROM, an autographed copy of Mastering Genealogical Proof by Thomas W. Jones, PHD, CG, CGL, FASG, FNGS, and a free conference registration to the 2014 conference in Richmond, Virginia. Items offered for sale will include titles from the popular Research in the States series, Mastering Genealogical Proof, and Paths to Your Past. New courses are being planned and readied for introduction at the FGS conference. Grab a flier about the NGS 2014 Family History Conference in Richmond. Pick up your NGS member ribbon!
