12 Sessions in 4 Days! My choices for the upcoming NGS conference

Inspired by Randy Seaver’s post, My Target NGS 2013 Conference Sessions - Wednesday, 8 May, in which he shares the conference sessions he’d like to attend on the first day of the NGS 2013 Family History Conference, I’ve created an outline of my session choices for all four days.

Although I’m not an official NGS blogger like Randy, I'll try to blog an article or two and maybe even include some photos while at the Conference.

My list shows the dates, the times, the track numbers, the session titles and, in parentheses, the speakers.

Wednesday, May 8th

11 AM – W121: Debunking Misleading Records (Thomas W. Jones)

2:30 PM – W142: The Genealogical Proof Standard in Action: Case Building When No Record States an Answer (Elizabeth Shown Mills)

Thursday, May 9th

8 AM – T202: Maximizing Your Use of Evidence (Thomas W. Jones)
