I want to go, but....

I'd love to go the the NGS Family History Conference in Raleigh this May, but: 1) it's 400 miles away, 2) I'd be by myself and 3) it's a good bit of money. So, it looks like a no go.

But, I decided to do go ahead and do something I'd been thinking about: I joined the NGS. It cost $60 for one year and comes with quite a few benefits.
  • Four issues a year/ browse old National Genealogical Society Quarterly
  • Four issues a year/ browse old NGS Magazine
  • Online Newsletter UpFront with NGS
  • The National Intelligencer Database, 1800–1850
  • NGS Bible Records Database
  • NGS Member Ancestry Charts (MACs) Database
  • Research Aids and Forms
  • Discount Prices from other retailers
The first thing I did once my membership went through was to search the Bible Records. Back in 2003 I submitted my Waters/Smith family Bible records, so I wanted to see if I could fine them. Sure enough, there they were! Now I'm off to look for some more information - something that I didn't submit myself.

I wanted to go, too (sniff, sniff). Maybe I'll follow your lead and join the Society.

I'm going and will try to report about it on my blog. I'm a member of NGS and I like to read the back issues of NGSQ.
