NGS Annual Conference News

Just a reminder that the early bird registration for the upcoming National Genealogical Society conference, to be held in St. Charles, Missouri, from 13–16 May, will end tomorrow, 30 March. By registering today or tomorrow, you will save $35, which is a substantial discount.

You can register by going to the StLGS website and clicking on the conference button on the home page or you can go directly to the NGS website at http://conference.ngsgenealogy.org/.

Although some events are already sold out, there is still room at the NGS banquet, most of the luncheons, and on Tuesday's tours. You can pay for those special events when you register, if you want to add them.

We also want to announce that St. Louis Genealogical Society will be one of the official media representatives for the conference. We will have an active presence on Twitter, Facebook, and in our blog. We are looking forward to sharing lots of news about this exciting conference during the week in May.
