If you are in or near New York City, you might want to circle October 26 and 27 on your calendar. The Genealogy Event, a 2-day conference, will be held at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 W 18th Street.
The event will feature a number of today's better-known genealogy speakers, including Schelly Talalay Dardashti, Judy G Russell, Ron Arons, Shellee Morehead, Laura G Prescott, Lorraine Arnold, and more. Forty presentations are planned. Many genealogy vendors will also be on hand to demonstrate their products and services.
One on One Expert Sessions, called the Living Library Lounge, will provide an opportunity for beginners and advanced genealogists alike to ask experts specific questions related to researching your roots.
The Genealogy Event will also hold an event called Past to Apron. This will feature a talk along with tasting and tips regarding how food and history can support family history research. A contest will run throughout the summer to select one lucky winner whose recipe will be featured at the show.
Major genealogy conferences are rarely held in New York City. It is great to see this one being scheduled and I hope it is a very successful event. If so, it might be repeated again in future years.
Tickets to The Genealogy Event cost $15 for one day or $25 for both days. You can add another $15 if you would like a t-shirt. Attendance at the Past to Apron Talk and Tasting on Friday afternoon will cost an additional $30.
