Highlights of the NGS Conference

Posted by:

The National Genealogical Society’s 2022 Conference, “Our American Mosaic,” was held in Sacramento May 24-27. CGS served as the local host society. Kudos to NGS and to CGS for all the work they put into making this a great success!

They made it happen! NGS Conference Chair Matt Barry (also a CGS board member and treasurer) with Jane Lindsey, Local Host Committee Chair.

In the Expo Hall, many different genealogical societies and genealogy-related companies shared space. The River City Quilters’ Guild contributed an array of beautiful quilts for a colorful backdrop.

We celebrated the release of the 1950 U.S. census with a “Back to the Fifties” dinner and costume contest. Many great contenders, but CGS Past President Linda Okazaki took the top prize. She brought the attitude!
