I haven't attended a national conference yet and plan to attend NGS in Salt
Lake City this coming year. I have been researching nearly 15 years and
would consider myself an intermediate researcher. I am better at some
records (especially late 19th century & 20th century) than others (before
1850). I am looking forward to hearing from presenters that I have been
reading about all these years.
Wouldn't it be helpful for beginners to have a special track for them such
as on one day? We have done this at model railroading conventions.
