To paraphrase Victor Hugo,
No one can stop a good idea.
Started by Jen Baldwin in October 2012, Conference Keeper was created as a single go-to website for finding information about genealogy and family history conferences. As Jen became more deeply involved with other genealogical work, Conference Keeper took a break and idled until late in 2015, when Eowyn Langholf and Tami Osmer Mize, co-founders of the WikiChicks, felt the site beckon, and re-ignited the mission and purpose of Conference Keeper. With a new look and an expanded mission, ConferenceKeeper.org is again curating and calendaring the dates and details of genealogy and family history conferences, seminars, workshops, and other events.
The mission of ConferenceKeeper is to curate details of genealogy events and freely share the information on a single, organized website and social media. The goal is to increase the availability of information about opportunities for genealogists and family historians to better their own skills and enjoyment of genealogical research.
We welcome submissions from local, state, national, and international societies, and look forward to serving the genealogy community!
