Family Tree Magazine’s home last week was in the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference exhibit hall at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.

If you’ve never been to a genealogy conference, we wanted to invite you in for a look!

In here, you’ll find displays and representatives from genealogy publishers, genetic genealogy companies, software manufacturers, libraries and archives, genealogical societies and more.

Visitors also can try out online database services such as Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, Footnote, ProQuest, Genealogy Today, GenealogyBank and others, and pick up tips from the people who help create those services.

Of course, genealogy conferences also offer a great chance to meet other researchers, seek advice from the experts, sit in on great classes and join field trips to local repositories.

Find more genealogy conferences and classes listed in our online events calendar.

(See ngsgenealogy.org for information.) Also look for conferences by your state and local genealogical societies, historical societies and libraries–these also present great opportunities to learn.
