NGS To Live Stream Ten Genealogy Lectures During the Family History Conference in May

#NGS2017GEN

Arlington, VA, 17 April 2017 — The National Genealogical Society will live stream ten important genealogy lectures during the May 2017 Family History Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. Five lectures focus on DNA’s role in genealogical research. The other five from the BCG Skillbuilding track will center on building a family researcher’s skills and expertise. These lectures will be among more than 175 offered at the conference, 10−13 May 2017. Details about the live streaming program, plus additional conference recordings, can be found on the PlaybackNGS Website. 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 broadcasts.

NGS has selected some of the most popular topics and nationally recognized speakers for the two featured tracks. Registrants for live streaming can sign up for a one day or a two day pass.
·        Track One: Viewers will be able to stream five lectures on “DNA” from 8:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, 11 May 2017. These lectures will demonstrate how DNA has revolutionized genealogy problem solving, clarified contradictions in records, and found female ancestors without a known maiden name. They will also offer advice on the best practices for analyzing autosomal DNA.
·        Track Two: Five “BCG Skillbuilding” lectures by the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) will be live streamed from 8:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, 12 May 2017. This set of lectures will teach how to probe documents beyond the obvious, find rich evidence in deeds, use an ancestors’ neighbors, prepare a Genealogical Proof Summary, and build a solid conclusion from disparate evidence.

Registration for live streaming will close at midnight, 10 May 2017, to watch the sessions in real time and as they happen. The Livestream special-value conference pricing will continue to be available for purchase until midnight, 14 May 2017, and will provide video streamed on-demand. After 14 May, the ten video sessions are available to order with the Video Pass package on the Conference Recordings page. All registrants of packages will receive an electronic version of the NGS 2017 Family History Conference Syllabus.
  
Instructions for viewing the live streaming will be sent to registrants on 9 May 2017.
