NGS Banquet features celebrities and prizes

Friday, 10 May 2013, cash bar at 6:00 p.m., banquet at 7:00 p.m.

I hope you have your ticket for the NGS Banquet because we've got an impressive line-up this year!

First, historian Mark Hall-Patton will present “Do You Think Anyone’s Going To Watch This Show?”

Hall-Patton is the hatted and bearded authenticator for the History Channel’s reality-television show, Pawn Stars, and is the Museums Administrator for the Clark County museum system.

Next, Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak will briefly share highlights from her thirteen-year-old monthly grant awards program in “Lucky 13: A Modest Proposal Regarding Genealogy Grants and Pawn Stores.”

Megan is a popular writer, speaker, and TV guest. She has appeared on Good Morning America, the Today show and on CNN, NPR, and the BBC.

Banquet attendees will have a chance to win an autographed copy of Mastering Genealogical Proof by Thomas W. Jones, and one of five annual memberships. Winners must be present to win.

There is still time to buy a ticket to this exciting event. To add meal events, log on at, click on My Account, select My Events, and then click to Add Sessions. Tickets are available until 22 April. No tickets will be sold onsite at the conference.
