A brand-new genealogy event is happening soon, and it’s called, well, the Genealogy Event. The conference, taking place Oct. 26 and 27 in New York City at the Metropolitan Pavilion, is full of classes, special events and exhibits.
And advance tickets to the Genealogy Event cost just $15 per day! (Click here to order online) On-site tickets cost $20 per day.
The roughly 40 half-hour power-learning sessions cover topics including getting started, genetic genealogy, house history, Irish research, Jewish research, African-American research, family photos, tracing New York ancestors and more. Download a schedule from the website’s Attendees page.
Family Tree Magazine is excited to sponsor Past to Apron, a separately ticketed event ($30) that’s all about where food meets history. It features a talk by our editorial director Allison Dolan about discovering and sharing your family’s food heritage, a giveaway of our beautiful book From the Family Kitchen by Gena Philibert-Ortega (see how pretty it is?)
and a tasting of the winning dish from the Past to Apron recipe contest (now concluded; judging has commenced). You can choose from sessions at 4 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday; order tickets at the same time you get your tickets to the Genealogy Event.
Genealogy Event exhibitors include companies (such as Family Tree Magazine in booth 406), research organizations and societies. Among those offering specials, Photo Detective Maureen A. Taylor will be offering 15-minute consultations about your mystery photos for a just $30. You can reserve your spot here.
