I am very excited to attend the NEHGS and CGS one day conference in Berkeleyat the Double Tree Hotel Marina. I'll be traveling down the day before so I will get a good night sleep and be rested and alert for this special day.
The New England Historic and Genealogical Society based in Boston, MA and the California Genealogical Society and Library based in Oakland partnered and brought the NEGHS west for a one day conference and another day of consultations on brickwalls.
Rhonda R McClure, NEHGS senior researcher is a nationally recognized proferssional genealigist and lecturer specializing in New England and celebrity research as well as computerized genealogy.
David Allen Lambert, NEHGS Online Genealogist, has been on the staff of NEHGS since 1993 and has published articles in The New England Historicial and Genealogical Register; the New Hampshire Genealogical Record; Rhode Island Roots; The Mayflower Descendant; and American Ancestors magazine. (I have taken a several sessions from him. He has been a keynote speaker at several luncheons in the past. I look forward to hearing him once again)
There are two options for each session time:
Beyond the Grave and Looking Past Your Ancestor's Death Records OR
Unique Resources in NY State Research
New Resources on AmericanAncestors.org for New England Research OR
Researching NY City Ancestors
Getting the Most out of New England Vital Records Online, in Print and on Film OR
The Golden Door Has Locks, Tracing Immigrant Ancestors
Researching New England Military Records OR
I Can't Find It: Understanding Online Search Limitations
So now my homework is to make sure my Legacy program is up-to-date as possible and see which of these sessions will be a benefit to my research.
