NERGC 2021 Virtual Conference
April 1, 2021 -- May 30, 2021
The New England Regional Genealogical Consortium earlier this year announced that the in-person conference to be held in Springfield, MA, in April, 2021, would instead be re-scheduled to 2023, due to anticipated Covid-19 restrictions. Instead, a Virtual conference will be held over a two month period in the spring of 2021, beginning April 1, 2021, and extending through the month of May.
Included will be three Gathering Days, consisting of scheduled presentations and live chats with each of our featured speakers -- Angie Bush, Pat Richley Erickson (Dear Myrtle), and John Grenham -- social interaction between all attendees will be encouraged. There will also be three "add on" Optional Activities; these are the equivalent of the special track days usually held on Wednesday, prior to the conference start in recent conferences. These will occur on Saturdays and are an additional cost -- Topics are Advanced DNA, Becoming a Professional Genealogist, and writing up Your Genealogy. In addition, there will be 60 days of recorded presentations available "on demand," as well as other traditional NERGC events, such as SIGs, Society Fair, Exhibit Hall, Ancestors Road Show.
Registration has not begun yet, but will start soon after January 1, 2021. However, you can start making plans now! The cost for conference registration will be $150; there will be no "early Bird" discount as in previous years. Cost for each of the three optional days will be $30.
