Crossroads of America NGS Conference

Crossroads of America  has 9 different tracts, they are coded from beginner to Intermediate. This is a conference that certainly can offer something of everyone:

  • Skillbuilding
  • Proving the Point
  • German Research
  • Settlers
  • Missouri
  • Research in the States
  • Recording Your Information
  • Little Used Records 
  • Maps

These are just the tracts from the first day. Some of them will continue through all three days and others will change. Some of the additions are Migration, Immigration, New York State, Eastern European and Strategies for Success.

The first lecture of the day begins at 8 a.m. and the last lecture is at 4 p.m. A luncheon lecture breaks up each of the three days.

The conference begins on Wednesday with an opening session at 8 a.m. The Exhibition Hall will open every day from 9:00a.m. -5:00 p.m. except Wednesday when it opens at 9:30. Vendors will be offering a variety of genealogy related materials.

Hotels are available in the area and many offer shuttles. It is a good idea to register early but since that is no longer possible there will be fewer options still available.

Research opportunities are  offered n the area but keep in mind that many other people have the same idea and if you really want to get to specific facility you may want to come several days early or stay several days after the closing. Also be sure to check with the specific facility about their hours and days of opening.
