NCGS Sixth Annual Speakers Forum

Today, February 19th, 2011, the North Carolina Genealogical Society (NCGS) hosts their Sixth Annual Speakers Forum in Raleigh, NC.   Throughout the day,  NCGS members will share their expertise on a variety of topics.

Presentation titles include:

  • State Land Grants: Accurate Information?
  • WorldCat: It’s Not Just for Librarians
  • Use of Facial Recognition Tools for Ancestor Identification
  • Freedmen’s Bureau Records: Much More Valuable to Anyone’s Research Than You Might Have Thought!
  • No Person Shall … Gallop Horses In the Streets: Using Court Records to tell the Story of our Ancestors’ Lives
  • Shoot…I already had this
  • Social Media: Share Your Genealogy Without Losing Your Mind
  • Story-Catching While You Can

The full details of the day can be found here.  I’m hoping that NCGS Speakers may share brief recaps of their presentations for those of us that can’t make it in person.  Be sure to check the NCGS website for future notifications.
