10th Annual North Star Genealogy Conference  (Workshops)
Earle Brown Conference Center, Brooklyn Park, MN
Family history and genealogy enthusiasts from across the Upper Midwest will converge October 6-7 for the Tenth Annual North Star Genealogy Conference at the Earle Brown Conference Center in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.
 
The conference theme, "Family History Crossroads," focuses on migrations of families to and through the Upper Midwest. The Friday-Saturday conference, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society, offers more than 20 how-to classes on topics such as DNA, adoption research, preservation of family heirlooms, land records, and other records for family history research. A special pre-conference North Star DNA Day October 5 offers tips for both beginners and more advanced researchers using DNA for family history research.
 
The conference features two nationally acclaimed genealogy educators: Paula Stuart-Warren of Roseville, Minnesota, and Cyndi Ingle of Milton, Washington. Stuart-Warren lectures nationally and coordinates courses at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh. Her blog, Genealogy by Paula, is published at http://genealogybypaula.com/. Ingle is the creator of Cyndi's List (www.cyndislist.com), a web directory of more than 300,000 web links for family history research. She is the author of three books on internet genealogy research, including Planting Your Family Tree Online: How to Create Your Own Family History Website.
 
The Minnesota Genealogical Society will honor MGS members for volunteer service and Minnesota genealogists for outstanding achievements at the annual MGS Awards Banquet Friday evening, October 6.
 
Complete program information and online registration are available at www.mngs.org. With 800 members, the Minnesota Genealogical Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization whose mission is to help people with Minnesota connections discover their family history.
