After 17 March, the price of registration for NGS members will increase from $215 to $250 for all four days. (Non-members will pay $285, up from $250.) You also will no longer be able to order a printed syllabus or flash drive version of the syllabus.

The conference, “Echoes of Our Ancestors,” will showcase more than 175 lectures featuring a variety of tracks and topics including DNA, heritage, immigration and migration, records, religion, resources and research techniques, and women. In addition to lectures that focus on tracing ancestors of European descent, attendees will discover lectures on African American, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, and Polynesian ancestry. The program will include all levels of genealogical skills from basic to advanced as well as four days of the Board for the Certification of Genealogists® (BCG) Skillbuilding lectures.
The opening session will feature Dani Shapiro, author of Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love, who has spent a lifetime writing fiction and memoirs about the corrosive power of secrets within families. She stumbled on a secret of her own: her beloved father was not her biological father. As she writes in Inheritance, “I always knew there was a secret. What I didn’t know: the secret was me.”
