Quite simply, ConferenceKeeper.org is the most complete, entirely free, online calendar of genealogy conferences & events.
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 friends Eowyn Langholf and Tami Osmer Mize felt the site beckon, and re-ignited the mission and purpose of Conference Keeper. With a new look and an expanded mission, ConferenceKeeper.org again began curating and calendaring the dates and details of genealogy and family history conferences, seminars, workshops, and other events.
Fast forward a bit, and Eowyn also left for other genealogy commitments. So while I continue to often use the “royal WE,” ConferenceKeeper is solely me, Tami Osmer Mize. Over the past few years it has become a true passion project, to share genealogy events, information, and education with others.
The mission of ConferenceKeeper is to curate details of genealogy events and freely share the information on a single, organized website and across various social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. The goal is to increase the availability of information about opportunities for genealogists and family historians by providing details on Genealogy Conferences & Events, to genealogists’ knowledge, skills and enjoyment of genealogical research.
