Arlington, VA, 15 May 2014: The National Genealogical Society (NGS) announces that registration for post-conference viewing of ten lectures from the NGS 2014 Family History Conference which was recently held in Richmond, Virginia, will be extended through 31 May 2014. Over four hundred people signed up for live streaming before the conference and post- conference viewing is being made available at the request of many who did not learn about the live streaming before the conference.

Details of the post conference program can be found on the NGS Conference website at http://www.playbackngs.com/774-ngs-streaming-packages.html. NGS has selected some of the most popular topics and nationally known speakers for the two featured tracks. Registrants for the recorded sessions can select either track or the bundled package that includes both tracks.

  • Track One: Records and Research Techniques. Learn about best practices and research sources.
  • Track Two: Virginia Resources and Migration Patterns. Learn about Virginia

Registration for post-conference viewing will close at 11:59 p.m., 31 May 2014.
