The Mobile Conference App for the National Genealogical Society (NGS) 2017 Family History Conference is now available. This conference will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, from 10‒13 May 2017. To download the free NGS Conference App, go to http://conference.ngsgenealogy.org/mobile-app/.
The NGS Conference App is available for iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, and web-enabled devices. Search your app store for NGS Family. If you already have the 2015 or 2016 NGS mobile app, go to settings within the app and tap “Exit to Conference.” Choose NGS 2017, then tap download.
Convenient features on the app allows users to stay organized with the Dashboard’s up-to-the-minute information and find all conference information in one place with “About NGS 2017 Family History Conference.” You can also follow and join in on the conference chatter with the built-in Twitter feed. The Twitter hashtag is #NGS2017GEN.
Most important, you will be able to locate sessions and exhibitors on the convention center maps and link to syllabus material for each lecture (available beginning in early May).
