Press Release #2soc


*Subject:* 2009 NGS Conference – May 13-16



The theme for the 2009 National Genealogical Conference, to be held in
Raleigh from 13-16 May, is *The Building of a Nation: From Roanoke to the
West*. Before the pilgrims came to Plymouth Rock and before Jamestown became
the first permanent English settlement in North America, a group of
colonists arrived at Roanoke Island on the coast of North Carolina in July
1587.



North Carolina history and research opportunities will provide the backdrop
for the 2009 conference. The conference will feature many nationally-known
speakers and the exhibit hall will be filled with vendors sharing the latest
products for genealogists. If you've never attended a national conference,
this is your chance to attend one right in your own backyard. The
educational opportunities are plentiful and the networking opportunities
unmatched. More information about the conference and volunteer opportunities
can be found on the internet at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org and
http://www.ncgenealogy.org/.
