The conference program, Journey of Discovery, will focus on our ancestors’ records and the knowledge, skills, and tools family historians and genealogists need when they embark on a new journey of discovery with each family they research. NGS encourages proposals from individuals and organizations. Conference tracks under consideration will reflect the journey of discovery of America’s diverse ancestors and will include immigration, government documents, emigration, court records, ethnic resources, maps, migration, military records, religion, DNA, research methodology, technology, heirloom preservation, and some regional topics.
