#NGS2016GEN - I see that the NGS 2016 conference website is now live. Registration doesn’t open until 1 December 2015, but as the website states, “it is not too soon to think about hotel reservations.” The hotel adjacent to the conference center and the most inexpensive hotel both sell out well before the conference.
The conference will be held 4-7 May 2016 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. For more information, about accommodations, see http://conference.ngsgenealogy.org/accommodations/.
#RootsTech - RootsTech 2016 is even sooner and is also coming fast. Between skiers (Salt Lake ski resorts are really close to the city), FHL patrons, attendees of other conferences at the Salt Palace, and the huge crowd drawn by RootsTech, adjacent hotels fill quickly. RootsTech will be held 3-6 February 2016 at the Salt Palace convention center in Salt Lake City. Registration opens 15 September 2015. While maintaining the number of classes, RootsTech is shifting its schedule to begin with two classes Wednesday afternoon and end with two classes on Saturday. This allows you to fly in Wednesday morning and fly out Saturday evening, thus saving one hotel night.
