Last year, the first ever Armenian Genealogy Conference was held in Watertown, Massachusetts. (I wrote about last year’s conference at: https://goo.gl/Z1u2XK.) The event was a sell-out. Within days of announcing the conference, the organizers were forced to close registration due to the large number of registrants and the size of the hall originally reserved for the event. Photographs and videos from the first conference can be found at http://westernarmenia.weebly.com/armenian-genealogy-conference-2016.html.
One good success deserves another! A second annual conference will be held this year on March 17-19, in a much larger facility in Detroit, Mich.
The weekend-long conference will be sponsored by the Armenian Research Center at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Conference details and registration can be found on the website https://www.armeniangenealogyconference.com.
Given the success of last year’s event, I would suggest signing up NOW if you would like to attend the 2017 Armenian Genealogy Conference!
