As we begin to focus on the upcoming year one needs to consider two of the major events for genealogy in the upcoming year. They are the National Genealogical Society and Federation of Genealogical Societies Conferences. They both offer wonderful learning opportunities to expand your genealogical knowledge and to meet other genealogist.
The National Genealogical Society meeting this year will be held in Kansas City, MO on May 14-17, 2008. These days are filled with a variety of programs covering a variety of aspects of genealogy. They cover programs that would interest the beginner to the advanced. The topics vary from vital records, military records to computer program updates. The vendor area will bring you in touch with the latest software updates. Here is the link to the site- http://www.eshow2000.com/ngs/2008/
The second show of interest is the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference in Philadelphia, PA on September 3-6-2008. This conference covers many of the items as the National meeting, but also covers a lot of issues that effect genealogical societies. This is another conference well worth the trip.
