In January 2012, the National Genealogical Society (NGS) introduced a new format for their genealogical Events Calendar at the NGS website. The Events Calendar will now be presented in a table format that is easier to read and will allow the reader to scroll quickly down the list to find events of interest. The format, prioritized by date then event and location, will help make sure genealogists don’t miss an event that is important to them. NGS subscriber organizations will now have an easy-to-use “form” at the website that standardizes the information submitted for the Events Calendar so important details for an event are included in each submission. Now subscriber organizations have a more timely and flexible alternative to publicize their local, regional, and national events to the thousands of daily visitors to the NGS website. The online form that subscribing organizations submit can be processed very quickly and the Events Calendar can be updated within days, an advantage to organizations and to our members who want to stay current.
The new Events Calendar can be viewed at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/event_calendar .

The Arlington, VA-based nonprofit is the premier national society for everyone, from the beginner to the most advanced family historian, seeking excellence in publications, educational offerings, research guidance, and opportunities to interact with other genealogists.
