Press Release from NGS:

GENTECh at the 2010 NGS Family history conference
The National Genealogical Society's 32nd Family History Conference, "Follow
Your Ancestral Trail," will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in
Salt Lake City, Utah, from 28 April - 1 May 2010. GENTECH is back in a BIG
WAY at the conference! For those of you who are familiar with GENTECH and
its many successful conferences in the past, you are aware that GENTECH was
merged with the National Genealogical Society (NGS) in 2005. Since that
time, NGS has included a separate track of lectures and presentations in its
regular program. 

This year, the GENTECH track of presentations will include cloud computing,
digital technologies, blogs, personal data storage/preservation, wiki's,
social networking, maximizing your Internet searches, Web 2.0, photo editing
software, Google Earth, real-time genealogical research, DNA, voice
recognition software and demonstrations from know genealogical software
vendors for Ancesty.com, Legacy , The Master Genealogist, Roots Magic 4, and
Family Tree Maker. These will be outstanding presentations by a number of
the nation's experts on how to apply technology to your genealogical
research efforts.

NEW this year, NGS will expand the "genealogy and technology" experience
with the sponsorship of FamilySearch sponsoring GENTECH Hall-an expansion of
the main exhibit hall of nearly 100 exhibit booths all focused on "genealogy
and technology." 

This expanded exhibit hall will feature genealogical software, digital
cameras, scanners, cemetery mapping software, GPS and Geo Mapping, social
collaboration and many of the desktop and web applications available to
genealogists. Expert help will be available to assist you with those
difficult technical questions, or with the things you always wanted to learn
to do technically to assist you in your research.

If that wasn't enough, a demonstration area of twenty-minute presentations
will run throughout the conference in the Exhibit area. There will be
theater seating for 150 with sixty computer terminals adjacent to the
exhibits area to immediately couple a hands-on experience with your new
knowledge. We firmly believe that you can get all of your "genealogy and
technology" questions answered here.

All of this technology in one place will surely make your decision to attend
this year's NGS Conference a great one! Registration details and the
conference program can be found online at
