Don't miss out on the opportunity to attend great lectures by
top-notch speakers on topics of interest to genealogists. We are
making a concentrated effort to attract fresh lectures on
subjects that have not been previously addressed. Programs at the
hotel conference center by the staff of the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum, National Archives, and Library of
Congress. Evening program and a great Vendor Showcase.

There will be a variety of workshops, include a special track of
workshops and classes for beginners, as well as sessions for
intermediate and advanced researchers. Workshops will be held in
one of our two computer classrooms - PC or Mac.

The Resource Room will abound with books, maps and 40 computers
(PC and Mac) for research. We will have links on the computers to
two dozen databases that are normally fee-based, but for the
conference, you will be able to use them for free.

We anticipate record-setting attendance, and that means more
potential "cousins" and lots of networking.
