American Library Association

 

The America Library Association (ALA) has a Genealogy Committee under the History Section of Reference and User Services Association (RUSA). They usually have programs and meetings at ALA conferences.

 

National Genealogical Conferences

 

One of the best ways to learn more about genealogy is to attend the national, regional, and local genealogy conferences.

 

There are many but the three major national conferences are National Genealogical Society, Federation of Genealogical Societies, and GENTECH. Regional and local societies often  sponsor a national society conference in their cities so these conferences appear all year long in different parts of the country.

 

Go to Cyndi’s List event calendar http://www.cyndislist.com/events.htm for information on conferences.
