The National Genealogical Society has an annual multi-day conference each year.
This year’s program is scheduled for May 11, 2011 through May 14, 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina. You certainly have plenty of time to peruse the material and make plans to attend this annual major genealogical event.
You can view the full-color 16 page registration brochure at their website by clicking on the following link at:
Also just visit the main NGS website to take a look at much more information and material that they have at the site. There is much more information about this conference available through their main website. Browse their site and see what other great resources they may have available online that can help you in your own research efforts.

Attending a national conference such as this is an eye-opening genealogical experience that I would recommend at least once in a lifetime for researchers. There are literally 180 informative hour-long programs that are scheduled during this program between 8 AM through 4 PM. There are even programs going on through the early evening if you can’t get enough information on genealogy from 8 AM until 4 PM!
This brochure is one that in the past I would have made a copy for distribution to our genealogy program participants. However, now that I am writing this blog, it is more appropriate to direct you to the National Genealogical Society website directly for you to take a look at their full 16 page color brochure they have put together.
The above link will take you directly to this 16 page incredible brochure.
Even if you do not go to this program or another one down the road, I always recommend that you should take a look at the variety of programs being offered. You may very well find a program with a great speaker that fits right in with your own research aspirations. You will then possibly have a contact to make with the speaker to see if they can help answer a question you may have on the genealogical topic of interest.
Also take a look at the long list of world-renowned genealogical speakers that are in the brochure.
These are the best of the best!
Your paths may cross with them through material they may have already published. Some may even be local to our own area. Some may very well be speakers we have had at our library offering some great genealogical programs for you to learn from!
Take a look through the brochure to gain a sense of magnitude of what a national genealogical conference looks like. It is amazing. These conference are often attended by anywhere from 1,200 to 1,500 fellow researchers. Vendors are also present selling their wares.
This conference can be nothing short of genealogy nirvana!
Check out the brochure. Check out the NGS Program. Try to attend one once in your life. You won’t be disappointed.
