                  The Institute for Genetic Genealogy is pleased to announce the 2014 International Genetic Genealogy Conference, which will be held August 15-17 in Washington, DC at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center.  An outstanding group of genetic genealogists and population geneticists have agreed to speak at this conference.  Representatives from all of the major genetic genealogy companies have agreed to give presentations.  Dr. Spencer Wells, who heads the National Geographic Genographic Project, will be the keynote speaker.  We are grateful to these speakers who are willing to share their knowledge with the genetic genealogy community.

                  The main portion of the conference will be held on August 16 and 17.  Family Tree DNA will hold a workshop in the evening on August 15.  Other genetic genealogy companies possibly will also be holding workshops on August 15 during the afternoon.  See www.i4gg.org for details about the conference and to register for it.  The registration fee for the conference will be $85.  Meals and lodging will be available at the conference center but must be purchased at least one month in advance.  For a preliminary conference schedule see http://i4gg.org/conference-schedule.  For descriptions of the presentations and biographical background about the speakers see http://i4gg.org/conference-speakers.  CeCe Moore, my wife Rachel, and I have been making preparations for this conference for the past 6 months.  Angie Bush, Charmaine Riley Holley, and Paul Woodbury helped distribute flyers about the conference and served at the Institute for Genetic Genealogy booth at RootsTech two weeks ago.
