If you were in DC last week you might have visited the Seventh Annual Genealogy Fair sponsored by NARA.  It was a great event – many activities to choose from, classes to take, vendors to visit and so much more.

More than likely though, most of you were not in DC and so missed the fair!  And, even if you were at the fair, with three talks given in each time period and no duplication, you weren’t able to attend all the sessions anyway.

Though NARA cannot re-create the excitement of the actual fair, they have done the next best thing.  They have created a page with handouts from many of the various talks given. These are a great resource to how to use some of the records kept at our National Archives!
