The Central New York Genealogical Society and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society are cosponsoring the first statewide genealogical conference in New York.
The New York State Family History Conference comes in response to rising interest in family history research and the demand for information about families who lived in the state. The two-day conference is Sept. 20 and 21 at the Holiday Inn & Conference Center, Liverpool. Organizers predict it will attract hundreds of researchers and experts in the field.
Attendees will have an opportunity to advance their skills in researching families and to build general skills through 20 lectures, two luncheons, a dinner and exhibits. Program and exhibitor information may be found at www.nysfhc.org.
The registration fee is $140. Members of either of the two genealogical societies receive a $25 discount. Purchase tickets in the online store at www.newyorkfamilyhistory.org.
