The National Genealogical Society (NGS) held its annual Family History Conference form May 11-14th, 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina. The timing was perfect as this year marks the 150th Anniversary of the start of the United States Civil War.
This conference was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends, and enjoy hundreds of wonderful presentations. I was asked to present one of the ICAPGEN sponsored lectures. It was a lot of fun for me to present "Finding Jews in the Records of the Southern States".
For those who couldn't make this year conference, there is always next year. The conference in 2012 will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio, the home of The American Jewish Archives. Hopefully Ill see a lot of friends there as well.
