The conference program, Family History Lives Here, features more than 175 lectures from basic to advanced genealogical research, including eighteen presentations on DNA science and methodology. The BCG Skillbuilding lectures are always one of the most welcome and well-attended tracks. Finding records and effectively using them is the focus of fifty-seven lectures. Among the types of records discussed are a wide range of religious records, military and associated records, North Carolina and regional U.S. records, and African American and Native American records.
The Exhibit Hall bustles with excitement for four days as more than 80 genealogical vendors and societies display their latest goods and services. NGS exhibitors are counting down the days to meet genealogists in Raleigh and share their latest products and news of improvements they have worked on in the past year. They enjoy the opportunity to communicate one-on-one with genealogists, inspiring and educating them on how to achieve better and better research results.
Luncheons and the NGS Banquet
Participating organizations sponsor several meal events during the conference. Seats are still available for the NCGS Society Host Event “Pig Pickin”, the NGS Banquet with guest speaker Stuart Watson, an award-winning investigative reporter, who used his investigative skills to find his birth mother, and some of the luncheons.
