The Missouri State Genealogical Association (MoSGA) is sponsoring Kathleen Brandt for the NGS 2015 Family History Conference. A dynamic and engaging speaker, Brandt will explore slave and slaveholder records of the Little Dixie region and share seven resources to research: from Missouri migration to post Civil War Missouri records.
Kathleen Brandt is a Professional International Genealogist and Consultant and a published freelance writer for genealogy magazines and columns. She is the author of the a3Genealogy educational and skill building blog that explores various cultural and ethnic folklife, traditions, history and genealogy research tips. Most recently, Brandt compiled and authored Colored Marriages of Saline County, MO. 1865-1870, published April 2014.
The 2015 NGS conference will be held in St. Charles, Missouri May 13-16, 2015.
The main mission of NGS is to "grow the genealogical community by providing education and training." One of the ways this is accomplished is through the annual conference. The NGS conference, long recognized as one of the premier genealogical conferences, has been held annually for thirty-seven years.
