Friday at the NGS Conference

I hope everyone is having a great time, learning a lot, and making new friends as we head into the last two days of the conference. 

There are 5 sessions on the BCG track today. The morning covers new records, records with errors, and the GIS System. Two afternoon sessions cover Congressional records and how to know when you have enough evidence.

Today's recommendations: 
F303 - Religion on the frontier after the Great Awakening. J. Mark Lowe.

F322 - Analyzing your evidence and planning your next step. Sharon Tate Moody.
F346 - Migrations west of the Mississippi - trails, rails, gold rushes and more. David Dilts.
F352 - Planning simple, effective, and thorough research. Thomas W. Jones.

Also on today's schedule:
~ DNA track with sessions for all levels.
~ Native American track - what records and resources are avaiable, strategies, and case studies.

The NGS Banquet will be held this evening at 6:00pm. Speakers Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak and Mark Hall-Patton. Topics: Genealogy grants and Pawn Stars!! Sounds interesting.
