Arlington, VA, 9 March 2015 —The National Genealogical Society (NGS) announces the live streaming of ten lectures from its 2015 Family History Conference, which will be held 13‒16 May 2015, in St. Charles, Missouri.  NGS members and others across the United States and overseas, who are unable to attend the conference in person, are invited to sign up for these live streaming lectures.
