2020 National Genealogical Society Family History Conference Now Virtual
Back to Blog

Ancestry® is a family and a community, even when we're not together ? which is why we are continuing to share resources and new ways for people to make family history discoveries from home. As a long-term partner of the National Genealogical Society (NGS) and a sponsor of the annual NGS Family History Conference, we will be participating in the now all-virtual event, starting with NGS 2020 Live! on May 20, 2020, and continuing with on-demand lectures available starting July 1, 2020. "We are so glad to be able to provide this level of education to our genealogy friends during a very challenging time," said Matt Menashes, NGS Executive Director. "And we're thankful to Ancestry and all of our other partners, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, and especially our staff who have made this virtual Family History Conference possible." The virtual conference will include the latest genealogy news in presentations, with some sessions hosted by experts from Ancestry. The livestream sessions will be followed by a brief moderated Q&A to allow attendees to learn even more from Ancestry experts. Beginning on 1 July, registered attendees will also be able to stream their additional webinars on-demand, along with the featured presentations from the NGS 2020 Live! Event.
