NGS is pleased to announce that early bird registration is now open for the 2013 Family History Conference! The conference is expected to be one of the best ever, with informative lectures, amazing exhibits, and lots of opportunities for networking with fellow genealogists.

The main mission of NGS is to "grow the genealogical community by providing education and training." One of the ways we accomplish this is through our annual conference. NGS conferences, long recognized as one of the premier conferences, has been held annually for thirty-five years.

NGS selected Las Vegas as the conference site because it embodies the West, where different cultures, nations, and technologies connect. In addition to attending the NGS 2013 Family History Conference, participants will have an opportunity to tour Las Vegas and the surrounding area, including the Hoover Dam.
