"FGS/NEHGS Conference Recordings Now Available

Thousands of people attended the recent FGS/NEHGS conference in Boston and had the opportunity to see and hear first-rate presentations made by leading experts in the field from several countries. But with hundreds of sessions to choose from they weren’t able to hear every session in which they were interested. And many genealogists were unable to attend the conference and missed out on hearing these excellent presentations. Thanks to modern technology, genealogists everywhere can now hear most of the lectures presented at the conference.

Many of the sessions were digitally recorded and are now available from the Federation of Genealogical Societies. More than 220 sessions from expert genealogists, including staff members of the National Archives and Records Administration, the National Archives of England and Wales, Library and Archives Canada, the Archives of the Archdiocese of Boston, and, of course, the staff genealogists at NEHGS. Family historians everywhere can now download these sessions and listen to them in their own homes.

Individual sessions can be downloaded for just $1.99. Special packages of 15 sessions are available for $25 – a discount of 17% off the usual price.

Once you download the sessions you can listen to them on your computer, iPod or other MP3 player. Visit to download your sessions now. If you have any problems or questions about downloading, please contact the FGS office at"
