Looking for a Genealogy Speaker for your Society, Conference or other event?

Summer is a great time to set up your fall programming and start thinking about your 2012 programs.

Whether you are seeking national or local genealogy speakers, here are three places where you might look for such speakers!


The members of the Genealogical Speakers Guild, have compiled information about themselves as speakers making it easy for you to find them. You may search the Directory of Members alphabetically by speaker or by location of residence of the speakers. Program planners may also wish to visit the "Speakers' Calendar" page to determine when speakers may be appearing in your state.


GeneaSpeak is a community-driven resource that allows genealogy speakers to post their own profiles and speaking engagements in order to publicize their presentations. GeneaSpeak replaces the GeneaBloggers Speakers Bureau which resided at the GeneaBloggers website since 2009…

Speakers and presenters who are currently on the genealogy speaking circuit and have a familiarity with blogging and using Google Calendars, can request author access by emailing geneabloggers@gmail.com.


Speaker Wiki is a free speaker directory that has been written collaboratively by thousands of event planners, speakers, and agencies around the world. It currently lists almost 6000 speakers from around the world.

Whether you are preparing for a local genealogy society meeting, conference, all-day seminar, workshop or any other type event where you might need a speaker, consider using one of these resources
