National Genealogical Society 2011 Family History Conference: Coverage Roundup


Now that we’re home safe and sound from the National Genealogical Society Family History Conference, we thought we’d highlight some event happenings and post-coverage and post it here for anyone who couldn’t make it to Charleston, SC this year.

We were amazed at the turnout! And thrilled to meet and chat with so many family history enthusiasts — newbies and seasoned professionals alike! It was wonderful to hear all the amazing family history research and stories.

At the booth, those new to family history learned how to build a free online family tree on; how to discover relatives with collaborative Smart Matching; how to showcase family trees with beautiful custom charts, as well as how to stay in touch with family with calendar reminders, photo sharing, event planning, and much more.

Here’s a nice roundup of Day 1 classes on Genealogy by Ginger, Day 2 from the Documenting the Details blog, as well as some great post-coverage, NGS Conference Posts Compendium on Genea-Musings.

And if you met us there, by all means please comment. We’d love to hear from you!
