Northwest Genealogy Conference Registration Is Open

The annual Northwest Genealogy Conference, hosted by the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society, will take place Thursday–Saturday, August 13–15, at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington, Washington, about an hour north of Seattle.  In addition to three full days of genealogy with several nationally known speakers, there is also a half-day of free beginning genealogy classes on Wednesday, August 12.

Two of the conference days have themes:  Friday will be DNA, with CeCe Moore being the featured speaker, and Saturday is courthouse research, with Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL.  There will be many other speakers on each of the days, including me on Saturday.  I will teach about how resources primarily focused on Jewish research can be useful for non-Jewish family history.  A PDF version of the full conference schedule is available for download.

Early bird registration is currently available for a limited time.  The deadline isn't stated on the site, so it looks as though sooner is better than later.

Visit the conference Facebook page and Like it to keep up with the latest news.  And I hope to see you in Arlington this August!
