Motivation Monday - Virginia is the Place to Be in May

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

Are you attending the National Genealogical Society's  2014 Family History Conference in Richmond Virginia?  It is the place to be in May. Registration has be open for a while now, hotel rooms are going quickly. Do you need to make those airline reservations or those are done.


                                                The local host is the Virginia Genealogical Society

The first permanent English settlement in North America, Virginia has been home to countless individuals - some remained for generations; others moved on to the next frontier. The conference will explore the origins of those who settled within Virginia's borders whether they came by land or sea. The program will include neighboring states, including Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee, with special emphasis on migration into and out of the region down the Carolina and Great Wagon Roads, over the appalachian Mountains, and south to Texas and beyond.

The four day conference will include more than 150 lectures by nationally known experts.
Conference Highlights: Two influential genealogical organizations, the Board of Certification of Genealogists (BCG) and the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen) will each celebrate their fiftieth anniversary in 2014. The Friday night banquet will pay tribute to both organizations.

I will not be attending this conference, but I do hope to give you some details as it comes closer. If anyone from our organization is attending, please let me know. It would be fun to see the conference through another's eyes.
