Society Saturday – NERGC Conference Announced

Posted by Jim Sanders on Saturday, 11 August, 2012

I’m not sure if this really qualifies for Society Saturday or not. The dates for the New England Regional Genealogy Conference 2013 have been announced. The conference will be held Manchester, New Hampshire from April 17 – Arpil 21, 2013.

NERGC 2013

I am by no means an official or un-official blogger for this conference. The NERGC conference lists the title of this years conference as “Woven in History – The Fabric of New England”. If any of the readers of my blog have a chance to attend this conference it will be well worth the money and time. I attended the NERGC conference in 2011 which was in Springfield, Massachusetts. It was both fun and educational. I came away from that conference with more research ideas, including starting this blog.

I highly recommend attending this wonderful conference to all.

Follow Friday – The Genetic Genealogist

Posted by Jim Sanders on Friday, 10 August, 2012

Genealogy has come a long way from the early days of the twentieth century to where it is today. Technology has advanced to the point where you can do real research without looking at the scrolls of microfilm straining your eyes. I wonder what the genealogists of the past would say if they were alive today.

One of those new technologies in the toolbelt of today’s genealogists is DNA. The wesbite The Genetic Genealogist is a great place to go if you’re looking for information and articles relating to this subject.

If your interested in looking into DNA further the links below offer DNA testing. 23 and Me is from the United States and Genes Reunited is from the United Kingdom.
