There is no doubt in my mind that this major online event for genealogists (professional and hobbyist) will be a HUGE success. So I recommend those who have the time to attend — ATTEND! This event will consist of lectures and chats broadcast live on the US National Archives’ channel at UStream.TV – http://www.ustream.tv/usnationalarchives. All webcast includes closed captioning and an American Sign Language Interpreter. Attendees will also be able to call in with their genealogy questions during the event . National Archives staff in Washington, DC, will be available from 1 to 4 p.m. ET on September 3 and 4 202-357-5420.
