NGS Conference in Salt Lake City, Apr. 28 - May 1

As noted in Broomfield Enterprise genealogy column, it's time once again for the National Genealogical Society (NGS) Conference, this year in Salt Lake City. The article, "Need a reason to attend NGS event? Here`s 10," offers ten good reasons to attend the event. One of the biggest benefits to the Salt Lake City location is, of course, the Conference proximity to the LDS Family History Library. The NGA, organized in 1903 is over one-hundred years old. An interesting article in PDF format, "The National Genealogical Society: A Look At Its First 100 Years," shows how the Society has evolved, as has the genealogical community itself. Researchers might also be interested in the very compelling video, "Paths to Your Past," available on the NGS website. Professionals and non-professionals alike express the heart the the genealogist.
