NGS Conference Live Streaming

Last May I attended the National Genealogical Society (NGS) Conference in Las Vegas. This year the conference will be in Richmond, Virginia (7-10 May) and I'm going, virtually.

NGS will be live-streaming several presentations that one may watch from the comfort of one's computer (or other capable electronic devise) and one may purchase access to two tracks of offerings. The deadline for purchase is 30 April 2014, midnight. Click on the links, below, to see further information about each talk.
