NGS offers a variety of ways to advertise your goods or services to NGS Family History Conference attendees and the wider genealogical community. You can reserve ad space in our Conference Syllabus or Program, have your company or organization’s flyer or brochures inserted into each Conference attendee’s Conference tote bag, or reach attendees via the Conference Mobile App.

The choice is yours—pick the one that best fits your budget and those whom you wish to reach—or advertise in all three options!

(Please note that ads must meet NGS’s criteria for submission. Payment must be received in full before ad will be placed. Please download and read the NGS Advertising Contract, below, for details or contact us with any questions.)

Print Advertising—Conference Syllabus and Program

Advertising space is available for purchase in the two main Conference publications—the Syllabus and the Conference Program.


The Conference Syllabus contains lecture outlines and material provided by conference speakers. It is produced as a large soft-cover book and on a flash drive. All conference registrants receive a copy of the syllabus by e-mail. They also can choose to purchase the soft-cover print version (7 3/4″ wide x 10 3/4″ tall) or the syllabus on a flash drive. This valuable reference source is usually retained by conference attendees and libraries nationwide for a long period of time.
