Set your compass to the Tenth Annual North Star Genealogy Conference. The two-day event features:
- Plenary lectures by nationally acclaimed genealogy educators, Paula Stuart-Warren and Cyndi Ingle (that would be Cyndi of the amazing Cyndislist!)
- 20 breakout presentations by leading speakers from five states
- New Location: The Earle Brown Conference Center is brimming with Minnesota heritage – it is an historic family farm converted to a modern conference center
- Plus, exhibitors, vendors, and door prizes add to the fun!
- DNA pre-conference day on Thursday, October 5 (already half-full)
Learning takes top billing at North Star, but it is also your opportunity to make new friends who share your enthusiasm for family history.
