Next seminar: April 23-24, Norfolk, Nebraska

My next stop is the Nebraska State Genealogical Society's Conference in Norfolk, Nebraska. The local host is the Madison County Genealogical Society. Are you getting a nagging feeling that you know something about Norfolk? As area residents know, that is the home place of Johnny Carson.

Click here for the full two day program which includes other speakers.This is also the spot to learn more about hotels, meals and the registration form. The pre-registration deadline is April 15th, just ten days away.

I will be presenting six lectures over the two days:
  • The Three Rs: Reading, 'Riting, and Research In School Records
  • Organizing your Genealogical Materials
  • Where Are The Records They Told Me to Check?
  • The WPA Era: What is Created for Genealogists
  • Finding Ancestral Places of Origin
  • Railroad Records and Railway History: Methods for Tracking
Norfolk is a great place for a conference as the driving distance to there from these places runs about 2 hours or less: Council Bluffs and Sioux City in Iowa, Omaha, Lincoln, and Grand Island in Nebraska, and Sioux Falls, Yankton, and Vermillion in South Dakota.

The following week is the NGS Family History Conference in Salt Lake City! I will also see you there for a full week of activities.

Paula - You were fantastic at this conference! It takes an exceptional speaker to hold an audience for two full days and you did just that! I can hardly wait to check out all of the resources in your syllabus, file some of my scattered papers, and plan to attend more conferences such as this one. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and expertise with us. Susan from Lincoln, Nebraska
