I was hoping to attend the 2018 National Genealogical Society conference, which is being held 2 to 5 May 2018 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but I’m not going to be able to. However, I have the option (as do you!) of watching a few of the classes via livestream. Registration is now open for livestreaming of ten of the 175 lectures being offered.
The sessions being streamed are offered on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4. Friday’s five sessions focus on DNA, African-American research, and Loyalists. Saturday’s five livestreams focus on BCG Skillbuilding. For a complete list of the sessions being livestreamed, go to the Livestream page for the conference.
You can buy a one-day pass for either day for $95 or a two-day pass for $149. If you want to watch the sessions live, you must register by May 2. From May 3 to 5, you can purchase on-demand viewing of the ten sessions for that price. (After that, you can purchase a video pass for all ten but the price goes up to $279.) The sessions remain available to you to view for a year.
Livestream registrants receive a copy of the electronic syllabus for the whole conference. For those registrants who miss the live broadcast, the session will be available on demand about 48 hours after the broadcast.

P.S. If you’re planning attend the conference but haven’t registered yet, be aware that online registration ends on April 20!
