    Join professional genealogists from all over the world in Salt Lake City from 19-21 October (and virtually on Whova) for this year’s PMC. The conference will open on Thursday morning with a welcome from APG President Annette Burke Lyttle, followed by our keynote address “Reset, Refresh, Refine...and Smell the Roses” delivered by Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL. Known by many as “The Legal Genealogist,” Judy is a genealogist with a law degree and an educator who provides expert guidance through the murky territory where law and family history intersect. Judy will share her inspiring story of resetting and refining her genealogy career many times over – and why it is so important to stop and smell the roses.


    PMC presentation sessions will be 75 minutes each — a 60-minute presentation allowing in-depth exploration of topics, followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer period. Closed captioning will be available for virtual presentations.


    Three in-person workshops will take a deep dive into practical topics: Planning a Year's Worth of Social Media Content in One Workshop, with Carly Lane Morgan, J.D.; Planning for Profit, with Rhonda Lauritzen; and Crafting Compelling Genealogy Presentations with Cathie Sherwood. Workshops are an additional fee and space is limited.
