    Welcome to the New England Regional Genealogical Consortium

    While many think of “NERGC” as a Conference, it is really much more. Originally formed over twenty years ago, NERGC is an association of genealogical societies seeking to bring affordable, cutting edge, National quality genealogical education within the reach of New England genealogists and family historians at an affordable regional price.

    Our 2017 Conference will be held April 26-29 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, MA. Wednesday will be filled with special tracks and events. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be the featured days of the conference with many presentations, a large exhibit hall, meals, networking, and plenty of ‘cousin finding’!

    Thomas MacEntee, F. Warren Bittner, and Kenyatta D. Berry (Co-host of the PBS series “Genealogy Road Show“) will be our featured speakers – presenting several times throughout the conference and possibly also at banquets, each brings a unique expertise to our event.

    To date, NERGC has produced thirteen conferences in every state in New England. Attendance at each of the past six conferences has exceeded 700, with 720 attending the 2005 Portland conference, 745 in Hartford in 2007, 739 in Manchester in 2009, and 830 in Springfield in 2011. The 2015 conference had just under 1,000 attendees, speakers, and exhibitors on hand.
