The conference offers students a unique opportunity to attend a wide range of lectures on such topics as
  • the basics of genealogical research and developing a sound research plan
  • overviews of repositories, including libraries, archives, newspapers, military, civil, and religious records, online resources, etc.
  • genetic research
as well as lectures that focus on African-American, Cuban, Jewish, French, Scots-Irish, and other ancestors; Florida’s history and its people, and much, much more. The conference also offers students the chance to discover how they might incorporate genealogical methods into their studies and, in turn, how they might apply knowledge from their fields of study to genealogy.

To register, students should download the Conference’s Student Registration Form and follow the directions provided on the NGS website at http://conference.ngsgenealogy.org/student-rate/. The student discount will not apply if a student registers directly through the Conference website.
