New England Regional Genealogical Conference 2021 (Conferences)
Our traditional conference is a three-day event. Our virtual event will have three Gathering Days with scheduled presentations and a live chat with our featured speakers. On these three days we will encourage social interaction between all attendees.
In addition to the Gathering Days, there are three additional ‘tracks,’ at an additional cost to attendees that will occur on Saturdays. Each is a set of four presentations as well as a speaker’s panel discussion on a specific topic.
Another aspect of the Virtual NERGC 2021 is a set of 60 additional presentations that are recorded and available ‘on-demand’ until May 31, 2021.
Of course, we are also including various activities throughout the 61 days to keep you engaged with this conference event – SIG’s, Ancestor Road Show, Society Fair, and Library & Archive are all traditional activities that will be carried into our Virtual Environment for 2021. And, absolutely, our Exhibit Hall, open 24x7 for 61 days, with many vendors opting to include scheduled appointments and/or video chats as optional activities at their booths.
