Genealogy conferences are definitely a great way for you to build on your family tree. What tips, tricks, techniques and strategies that you learn from them can be used well after these events have passed.
One thing that is certain is that you will make some new friends, these conferences often events draw a lot of people.
Who knows you may even find a relative there as well.
A great hint is to print yourself some business cards. They don’t have to be fancy, just have basic information about yourself so that people don’t forget you. Put your name, email address and maybe website address as well if you have a family history site. And don’t forget to put your social media links.
Adding information as to what you are researching is also a good idea, such as places and surnames that you are interested.
