NGS 2017 Family History Lives Here

The NGS 2017 Family History Conference, which will be held in Raleigh, is just around the corner. The conference will take place from 10–13 May at the Raleigh Convention Center. Have you registered for the conference? You won’t want to miss this opportunity to network with 2,000+ genealogists, choose from over 170 lectures on a wide range of genealogy related topics, listen to nationally known speakers who are experts in their field, and peruse an exhibit hall filled with well known genealogy vendors. You can register for the conference on the NGS website. Hurry. The early bird deadline ends on 27 March 2017.

NCGS is proud to be the Local Host for this year’s conference. We have planned several events that will take place during the conference week.

  • The Wednesday night Pig Pickin’ will be held on the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. 

  • Society Night, a free event for conference attendees, will be held at the North Carolina Museum of History on Thursday night.
