I have been writing all week about this year's annual conference of the National Genealogical Society. The conference ended on Saturday afternoon. However, I am already excited about next year's conference as it is being held in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is one of my favorite cities, even though I am not a gambler. I was there just three weeks ago but never put a nickel in a slot machine during my visit. However, Las Vegas has the best shows, great restaurants, and reasonably-priced hotels. The airfare to and from Las Vegas from almost every city in the U.S. is also reasonably priced, as it is a very competitive route for the airlines. The "people watching" is probably better in Las Vegas than in any other city. In short, it is a great place to hold a conference of any sort. I suspect the genealogists will love it.
As you might understand, there isn't much information yet on the NGS web site about next year's conference. After all, this finished this year's event. I am sure more information about the 2013 event will appear within a few months at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org.
The local host societies include:
- Centennial Las Vegas Genealogy Society
- Clark County Nevada Genealogical Society
- Jewish Genealogy Society of Southern Nevada
- Las Vegas Nevada Large Multi-Stake Family History Center
- Nevada African American Genealogy Society
- Nevada State Society Daughters of the American Revolution
The folks from Las Vegas were at this year's conference, promoting the 2013 NGS Conference:
