NGS Conference Early-bird Deadline Approaching

I am excited to attend the NGS Family History Conference in Richmond this year. I am one of the official bloggers and will be posting my conference tips before the conference, and some of the things I learn while I am at the conference. For those of you thinking of registering for the conference, the early bird deadline is only a week away. For those of you already registered, be sure you have reservations for the luncheons and NGS banquet if you want to attend. Meal reservations have to be in by April 24th. These are a great place to network and get to know other genealogists. Here is the latest press release on the conference from NGS:

Have you registered for the NGS Family History Conference in Richmond? The deadline for the early bird discount and ordering a print syllabus is 24 March 2014. After that date, the NGS member price will increase from $195 to $230 for all four days, the non-NGS member price will increase from $230 to $265, and only the flash drive syllabus will be available. You really don’t want to miss this year’s exciting conference program from 7–10 May at the Greater Richmond Convention Center and Richmond Marriott. For conference information and to register, go to
