2011 Genealogy Conferences

Posted January 13, 2011 by George | 7 Comments

Updated 1/24/2011 to include conferences in the United Kingdom.

Updated 3/16/2011 to include AAHGS.

I was doing some preliminary conference planning yesterday and I wasn’t able to locate a reliable list of genealogy conferences for 2011.  Since I was making the list for myself, I decided to turn it into a blog post (and project) for the benefit of anyone else who is looking for a similar list.  Please use the comments below if there are any additional details you’d like me to add to the list.

Note: This list is surely not comprehensive.  If you’d like to see additional conferences added to the list, comment on this post or update the Genealogy Conferences project, and I’ll make updates to both places as feedback is received.
