MyHeritage is excited to head to the 2013 National Genealogical Society (NGS) conference, taking place next week from May 8-11, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
NGS was established 110 years ago in Washington, DC, to serve and grow the genealogical community through education, training, promoting access to and preserving genealogical records.
The conference is a great opportunity for genealogists and those interested in family history research to meet and share ideas on how to advance family research.
Will you be at NGS? Come visit MyHeritage at booth #431, and meet our team.
Last week, the MyHeritage team was kept very busy in a whirlwind of work, learning and fun at very well attended National Genealogical Society's 2012 conference in Cincinnati, Ohio.
On Wednesday, the team was busy at the booth answering questions and providing more information to attendees who had heard about MyHeritage from speakers who spoke about our very social family trees, WorldVitalRecords.com data, facial recognition technology and much more.
This post is also published on the WorldVitalRecords blog (part of the MyHeritage family).
NGS 2012 began today with a huge line to enter the exhibit hall.
MyHeritage is at the National Genealogical Society (NGS) conference, taking place this week in Cincinnati, Ohio (USA) from May 9-12.
The conference is a fantastic opportunity for genealogists and anyone interested in family history research to get together and share ideas.
NGS was established more than a century ago - in Washington DC, in 1903. It provides education and training for the genealogy community and promotes access to and preservation of genealogical records.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet some of you at the National Genealogical Society (NGS) Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a well organized event, with many great speakers, product release announcements, with interesting companies furthering genealogical research, developing data protection and transforming family trees into works of art. It was also a good chance to meet some of our users and those who are part of the international genealogy market. I staffed the MyHeritage booth with Daniel Horowitz, our Genealogy and Translations Manager, and we were happy with the enthusiasm shown towards our products. Together, we answered some of your questions, chatted about your family discoveries, and noted your thoughts about the strengths of our site and what users want to see as MyHeritage.com goes forward.
I have finally found time to write about my recent trip, which featured two intensive genealogy-focused weeks. I returned to a huge backlog of emails and other tasks and then had to firm up the details of my next trip.
First, I want to thank all the wonderful people who hosted me during this trip.
It kicked off in Grand Junction, Colorado, where Dale Seibert, of the local LDS Family History Center, invited me to the Family History Fair. This small town is simply beautiful, everyone is friendly and doors are open all the time. I gave four lectures on “Face Recognition” and “Family Tree Builder software”.
People were so kind - as they have been in every other place I have visited. I think the most amazing thing for them was to have someone from so far away visit. Believe me, I did it with pleasure.
