3rd Annual Northwest Genealogy Conference - August 17-20, 2016


3rd Annual Northwest Genealogy Conference - August 17-20, 2016

Have you heard about the great genealogy conference coming up in August -- in Arlington Washington? It's the 3rd Annual Northwest Genealogy Conference, hosted by the Stillaguamish Valley Genealogical Society, just north of Seattle. It's four days packed full of genealogy, centering on the theme "Family Secrets Uncovered -- Lost History Found," where you'll learn how to put together a family history, and you might even uncover some of your own family's secrets.

There will be well-known and respected keynote speakers -- including Blaine Bettinger, the Genetic Genealogist speaking on DNA; Claudia Breland speaking on Gathering Your Family's Story, and Lisa Louise Cooke will be there to speak on "Tools To Help Tell the Story."

Starting off with the Free Day Wednesday afternoon, Speaker Beth Foulk will address beginner's issues -- which is also a good refresher for the more seasoned genealogists. There will be such great genealogical information for all levels, AND it'll be lot of fun!

Between classes take a chance to meet a distant cousin with the “Cousin Wall”. Participate in the genealogy-related scavenger hunt on Free Day Wednesday, and enjoy the free taco bar at the evening reception. Wear a costume from your ancestors’ homeland on the Friday dress-up day. And much much more!
