Arlington, VA, 19 February 2015: The National Genealogical Society (NGS) announced today the opening of official media registration for the 2015 Family History Conference, which will be held 13–16 May 2015 in St. Charles, Missouri.

Registration is open through 16 March 2015. NGS will notify registrants of their acceptance by 23 March 2015.

NGS recognizes the importance of media who regularly draw attention to records, research methods, tools, software, events, and other genealogical topics. Individuals and organizations with official media designation play an important role in the success of the NGS Family History Conference by sharing in conference fun, spreading newfound knowledge, and increasing conference attendance and participation.

Official media will be permitted to use the official press and blogger logos, and will be granted use of the press table at the conference. The NGS Family History Conference blog will link to all official blogs, social media pages, and websites. NGS will award five $50 NGS 2016 Family History Conference registration credits to official media who provide the best coverage at this year’s conference.
