There will be no proselytizing at the conference.


You are welcome to show up at the door on the day of the conference. But  some of our classrooms have limited seating and registering will help us with an attendance count and classroom size planning.

Spread the Word

We strive to reach as many people interested in genealogy as possible. You can help by spreading the word. Tell your family and friends about the conference. 

Please Note

We have not yet finalized the list of classes, the list of speakers or the class schedule for the 2016 Conference.

We have left the 2015 Conference information on the website as an indication of the type of material we present and of the schedule for the day.

When we have the 2016 classes, speakers and schedule sufficiently developed we will update this website and send a mailer to all prior and current registrants.

If you wish to receive the mailer, please register now for the 2016 Conference.

In the registration form, the list of classes in which you have an interest is required. If you have an interest in some of the 2015 classes, please enter those classes. We will take note of your interest in prior classes and if a sufficient number of people are interested in a given class, we will try very hard to repeat that class. If you have no interest in seeing any of the 2015 classes repeated, just enter "2016 classes" in the field.
