Northwest Genealogy Conference Next Month

Registration is still open for one of the region’s premier genealogical events: the Northwest Genealogy Conference.

Sponsored by the hard-working Stillaquamish Valley Genealogical Society, the four-day conference will be in Arlington, WA from Wednesday, August 16 through Saturday, August 19th.

The first day, Wednesday, is a free day geared toward beginning genealogists (although we all have so much we can learn or relearn!). Wednesday will also feature two management classes specifically for local societies:

How to Attract & Keep Members…Awake with Donna Potter Phillips, WSGS Vice President

The Nuts and Bolts of Society Management with Virginia Forney Majewski, WSGS President

Wednesday’s classes are all free, but registration is required.

The remainder of the conference (Thursday through Saturday), will feature over a dozen speakers, including keynoters Diahan Southard (Thursday), Daniel Earl (Friday) and Kenyatta Berry (Saturday). There’ll also be vendors and lots of opportunities to network with fellow genealogists.

Don’t miss this conference! Visit the website for more information or to register.
