Below is a list of major genealogical conferences. The sharing of information during conferences makes for quite a learning experience. It is not unusual for contacts to be made or to meet a long lost cousin during these conferences. You will also meet people who have gone through the same research experiences you are going through, and it is important to not make the same mistakes they may have made.
