Massachusetts Genealogical Council 2010 Seminar

*Records and Repositories

Exploring the Treasures of Massachusetts

Join the Massachusetts Genealogical Council for our 2010 annual seminar, June 26, 2010 at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts for Records and Repositories: Exploring the Treasures of Massachusetts. This unique event will highlight collections useful for genealogists in a variety of repositories including the National Archives and Records Administration at Waltham, the Massachusetts Historical Society, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and other locations.

Our main track will be sponsored by the National Archives and Records Administration (Waltham). This engaging track will provide in-depth looks at records available from the Federal Government (both onsite and online). Speakers will highlight online resources, the 1940 United States Census, civil war records, and other resources for every genealogist. Other tracks will provide insights into other repositories and topics.

For lunch, MGC Program Director Joshua Taylor will provide insights on his experience in filming NBC's Who Do You Think You Are? - focusing on research for Sarah Jessica Parker and the process of developing materials for the hit television show.

This year's program will also feature an update on legislative actions affecting Massachusetts genealogists, a silent auction, and MGC annual meeting.
