The Central New York Genealogical Society and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society have organized and are jointly producing the first ever statewide genealogical conference in New York State.
The conference web site promises, "Attendees will have an opportunity to advance their skills in researching New York State families and to build general skills. The two-day conference — scheduled for Friday and Saturday, September 20-21, 2013 - includes twenty lectures in two parallel tracks; a Thursday evening reception; two luncheons and a dinner banquet, all with riveting speakers; and exhibits by vendors and societies."
Looking at the program, I note that some of the nation’s top experts in New York State and general genealogical research will speak, including:
- Paula Stuart-Warren, CG
- Joseph Lieby, EdD
- D. Joshua Taylor
- Ruth Carr
- Michael Leclerc
- Eric Grundset
