Pre-conference programs – Something for Everyone

We hope you plan to come early and take advantage of one of the other programs offered the day before the NGS conference starts. There are three programs for your choice.

· Option 1: See some local historical sites in the Kansas City area. This tour is on Tuesday, 13 May 2008. You will visit the Truman Presidential Museum and see his nearby home. From there you will visit the National Frontier Trails Museum. Then after lunch (on your own) you will tour the Arabia Steamboat Museum.

· Option 2: Librarian Day will also take place on Tuesday, 13 May 2008. Open to all librarians and library volunteers. The program will offer ideas for librarians working with limited resources; ideas for providing information for genealogists and online resources available to libraries for genealogy. Lunch will be provided.

· Option 3: If you would like to make use of your time to improve your skills, why not sign up for a day long workshop hosted by the Board of Certification of Genealogists (BCG). Dr. Thomas Jones, CG, CGL, FASG and Barbara Mathews, CG have a great session planned for you. You will work through hands on exercises to practice evaluating evidence and learn proper documentation of genealogical research. Lunch will be provided. For more information check the website at:
