Provided here are links to conference and seminar information, both local and national, that may be of interest. Where practical, actual registration forms will be downloadable from this page. Check back often to see what genealogical resources are available for sometimes a very nominal cost (in some cases, free). This is a great way to learn more about doing family history!
Note: if you have information about a conference or seminar that is not listed here, please send it to jean (at) and indicate “seminar/conference information” in the subject line. Thank you!

Seminar/Conference information (Links in greenCalifornia events in red, Virtual – online (attend from the comfort of your own home via Internet – events in blue) It is most likely that anything listed is being handled virtually.


Due to COVID-19, many conferences and seminars have gone to a virtual format, so a lot of educational opportunities (some free, some at a cost) are provided to folks who would not otherwise be able to travel to attend the respective events. I am unable to list all of these here but direct you, instead, to visit Conference Keepers (link above) to be most informed about what is happening in the Genealogy Education arena.
