All About the First Hybrid NCGS Fall Conference

We are passionate about bringing top-notch genealogy education to hobbyists and professionals alike. After a year hiatus, we are delighted to offer our first ever hybrid NCGS Fall Conference.

Join us and learn how to improve your research skills and learn techniques and methodologies that will help you find your Tar Heel and southern ancestors.

Here are some key details you don’t want to miss:

  • The conference will take place on October 29-30.
  • In-person events will be held at the McKimmon Conference and Training Center, Raleigh, North Carolina.
  • Friday will feature two optional in-person workshops. The workshops run concurrently, so you can only attend one.
  • The annual Awards Banquet will occur on Friday evening and feature a talk by Our State Magazine editor, Elizabeth Hudson.
  • Saturday will feature four live classes available in-person and live-streamed.
  • As an extra bonus, all attendees registered for either the in-person or live-streamed sessions will have access to four additional pre-recorded lectures, which will be available online for 90 days following the conference.
