The Northwest Genealogy Conference will be held over in Arlington, on 17-20 August, this year. The three keynote speakers are Blaine Bettinger (DNA expert), Lisa Louise Cooke (media expert), and Claudia Breland (online research expert).
Plus there will be 45 other, smaller, sessions with "knowledgable and entertaining speakers," of which I am proud to say I am one.
This is YOUR chance to attend and participate in one of the largest conferences held close to home and at way less the cost. Click to www.NwGC.org for more information.
Start dropping your change and $1 bills into an empty mayo jar and by August you'll have enough! Oh, and do mark your calendar.
