Family History Day, Boston, 16 October 2010

The New England Historic Genealogical Society and announce their second Family History Day on Saturday, October 16th at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center Boston. If you ever wanted to visit Boston and New England at the height of the autumn foliage season, this is the event for you!

The registration fee for this all day event is $38. You can register online.

I attended the last Family History Day in February 2010, and I was impressed with all the classes I attended, the people I met, my private consultation and the vendors. Again, will be providing free large scale document scanning, and the famously talented NEHGS staff will be providing private fifteen minute consultations for just an additional $5, preregistration required.

Some of the workshops (final class schedule will be posted in September) will include topics such as:

Organizing Your Family Tree
Researching Your New England Ancestors
Finding your Family in Immigration Records
Discovering the New England Historic Genealogical Society
Getting the most out of your membership

  1. Wasn't if free last time? That's a big jump in price.

  2. Marian, the last Family History Day was $30 in Copely Square and included free parking. Actually, it was the free parking that got me to go last time! No mention of parking this time around, and the price reflects a larger venue. I'm going to email them to see if parking is included this time. I'll let you know what they say!

  3. Marian, The latest word from Josh Taylor at NEHGS is that free parking is not available this time due to the change in venue.
