Today the National Genealogical Society released its 2017 Family History Conference program, titled “Family History Lives Here.” More than 175 lectures will be offered, with the diversity of topics NGS Conferences are known for.
Records pertaining to the Carolinas and neighboring states, along with migration into and out of the region will interest anyone with Southern research interests. Additional themes include researching Native American, African American, and female ancestors as well as families with black sheep.
Attend presentations that sharpen your methodology skills, help solve research problems, and improve your understanding and application of DNA research tools. Network and learn from others solving the same research problems you have. Find the conference program online at https://grip.ngsgenealogy.org/program/ and as a sixteen-page PDF brochure, which can be downloaded at https://goo.gl/uci0ec.
