If you missed the big NGS Conference in Kansas City, you can still go to the Midwestern Roots Conference in Indianapolis (15-16 August 2008). There are also some Pre-Conference activities on 14 August 2008. Speakers include Christine Rose, Charles F. Kerchner, Jr., Curt B. Witcher, Beau Sharborough, Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak, and Stephen Morse, to name only some. Thirty sessions will cover genetic genealogy; conducting effective Web searches; working with photos and graphics; census, land, and vital records; and library and newspaper research.
Location: Indianapolis Marriott East, 21st Street & Shadeland Avenue.
