Yes! NGS 2014 Announces Livestream Sessions!

How cool is this?

National Genealogical Society Announces
Live Streaming Broadcast
2014 Family History Conference
Richmond, Virginia 7–10 May 2014

ARLINGTON, VA, 5 MARCH 2014: The National Genealogical Society (NGS) announces the live streaming of ten lectures from the NGS 2014 Family History Conference, which will be held 7‒10 May 2014, in Richmond, Virginia. The upcoming conference will be the first time NGS has provided a portion of the conference to NGS members and others across the United States and overseas who are unable to attend the conference in person.

Details of the live streaming program can be found at on the NGS Conference website at Livestreaming at NGS2014Gen.  NGS has selected some of the most popular topics and nationally known speakers for the two featured tracks.
Registrants for live streaming can select either track or the bundled package that includes both tracks.
• Track One: Records and Research Techniques can be viewed on Thursday
afternoon, 8 May 2014, and Friday morning, 9 May 2014. Join the conference
from home and learn about best practices and research sources.
• Track Two: Virginia Resources and Migration Patterns can be viewed on Friday
afternoon, 9 May 2014, and Saturday morning, 10 May 2014. Learn about
Virginia’s records and her people who moved south and west to new lands
pushing the frontier ever forward.

Registration for live streaming will close at midnight 30 April 2014. All registrants will
receive an electronic version of the NGS 2014 Family History Conference Syllabus.
Registration is discounted for NGS Members.

I will be attending in person, but what a great opportunity for those who can't be there! Some who are going to attend in person may opt to register for the Livestream so that they can watch later at home and chose other classes to attend while in Richmond.  The sessions scheduled for viewing are from some very well respected and knowledgeable presenters in the genealogical community. On top of great topics and great speakers, all will get a copy of the Syllabus for the conference!
 If you have been to an NGS Confernce before, you will understand what an incredible opportunity this is. If not, I encourage you to either attend in person this May in Richmond, Va. or register for the live streaming sessions.  Don't miss this chance for a wonderful learning experience!

Thanks so much NGS!
