A few months ago I wrote an article complaining about outrageous charges for hotel rooms at or near the various national genealogy conferences. I have now vowed that I will never pay those rip-off prices again. Today I made my reservation for a hotel room at the 2009 conference of the National Genealogical Society's annual conference to be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, on 13 through 16 May 2009.
There will be a shortage of hotel rooms in the city during the 2009 NGS conference. Three major universities in the city reportedly will all hold their graduations the same weekend. As a result, hotel rooms are expected to be fully booked months in advance. If you are planning to attend this conference, I'd suggest you make a reservation NOW in some hotel.
