Want to learn about other upcoming genealogy events?  Have an event you want to publicize?  Check out the new in 2012 format for the NGS genealogical Events calendar at the NGS website.

It is now presented in a table format that is easier to read and you can 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 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. 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 Events Calendar can be viewed at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/cs/event_calendar
