Attend Select NGS 2016 Conference Sessions from Home

I was happy to receive an email from the National Genealogical Society (NGS) announcing that registration was now open for the live streaming sessions that will run during the NGS 2016 Conference in May. NGS starting offering this option in 2014, and since I had not attended that conference, I was able to register for one track of the live stream. I watched two of the five sessions live, and the other three over the course of three months. When you register for one or both tracks, you can watch them live, or you can watch them on-demand for up to three months. I had a great experience with both the live and on-demand options. In fact, even though I attended the 2015 conference, I registered for a live streaming track because it contained a few sessions that overlapped with others I wanted to attend and some of them I knew would fill up quickly and this way, I wouldn’t have to fight for a seat in the in-person session. It worked out great since I had three months to watch them all on-demand! The pricing is reasonable, so I encourage you to think about “attending” the conference in this manner if you are unable to attend in person. The other bonus for attending the live streaming sessions is that you get a digital copy of the entire conference syllabus. See details below.
