I've found that a silver lining during the pandemic has been genealogy education. I've attended institutes, watched countless webinars, and worked hours and hours on genealogical-related pursuits. I was really excited to attend my first New England Regional Genealogical Consortium (NERGC) this year as both an attendee AND a presenter, but obviously that was not in the cards.
But I'm still really excited, and if you're not here in New England, you can attend, too! I'm pumped for the line-up and opportunities, all of which I can enjoy while rocking pajamas from the comfort of my own home. There will be live chats, special interest groups, a virtual exhibit hall, and 60 on-demand presentations that will be available starting April 1st through May 31st. 61 days! I'm personally most excited for presentations on New England records and repositories (which account for many on the list!) and African American DNA research. One of those presentations is from yours truly on "The Jews of New England," where I provide an overview of their history and key repositories to conduct New England-based Jewish genealogical research.

Whether you're a beginner or a pro, there will be something for everyone at #NERGC2021. Hope to "see" you there!
