New England Regional Genealogical Con-ference (NERGC):
"Navigating the Past: Sailing into the Future"
Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, on April 15-18, 2015.
The early bird registration deadline ends on February 28, 2015. Registration is $120, but after that date increases to $150.
GSV’s sponsored speaker is Jane Williamson: "Telling it Like it Was: The Under-ground Railroad in VT". This talk presents the evolution of a single site – Rokeby Museum – to explore how easily the mythological Underground Railroad can displace historical events in our understanding of the past. Jane has served as director at Rokeby Museum since 1995, where she has pioneered a more accurate and nuanced understanding of the Underground Railroad in Vermont and New England.
