2017 North Star Genealogy Conference
Host: Minnesota Genealogical Society
Location: Earle Brown Conference Center in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis, Minn.

Family history and genealogy enthusiasts from across the Upper Midwest will converge 6-7 October for the Tenth Annual North Star Genealogy Conference at the Earle Brown Conference Center in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.

The Friday-Saturday conference, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society, offers more than 20 how-to classes on topics such as DNA, adoption research, preservation of family heirlooms, land records, and other records for family history research. A special pre-conference North Star DNA Day October 5 offers tips for both beginners and more advanced researchers using DNA for family history research.

The conference features two nationally acclaimed genealogy educators: Paula Stuart-Warren of Roseville, Minnesota, and Cyndi Ingle of Milton, Washington. Stuart-Warren lectures nationally and coordinates courses at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh. Ingle is the creator of Cyndi's List (http://www.cyndislist.com), a web directory of more than 300,000 web links for family history research.

Complete program information and online registration are available at http://www.mngs.org.

With 800 members, The Minnesota Genealogical Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization whose mission is to help people with Minnesota connections discover their family history.

This Calendar is sponsored by Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.
