2017 GenealogyBlog Genealogy Events Calendar

After an absence for over two year, GenealogyBlog is once again posted an Event Calendar. It is again our goal to publish the most comprehensive listing of genealogy-related events available anywhere. Please email your events to Lmeitzler “at” gmail.com as soon as you have your event place & date set. Send updates as you get more details. You may also mail copy to: GenealogyBlog.com, PO Box 1682, Orting, WA 98360. All events that are half-day or more are welcomed. This isn’t the place for general meeting announcements.

The GenealogyBlog Genealogy Event Calendar is in REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. The events that we know of farthest into the future are listed first. By laying the GenealogyBlog Genealogy Event Calendar out in this way, we are able to leave events posted AFTER THEY HAVE TAKEN PLACE. We invite our readers to send short summaries of the events following the event itself. Commentary on such things as attendance numbers, vendors, accommodations, the program, and so forth are welcomed. Please include your name, city, state, and if outside the U.S., your country. Give the date, name and place of the event first please.

Please report errors, bad links, additions & corrections to me at: Lmeitzler “at” gmail.com

The easiest way to SEARCH the Event Calendar is just do a “control f” on your keyboard and type in a place, word, or date you are searching for.

The following Calendar is for 2017 only. Click here for 2011 events. Click here for 2012 events. Click here for 2013 events. Click here for 2014 events.


December 3-9, 2017 – Salt Lake City, Utah

Do You Want to Make Gigantic Leaps in Locating Your Ancestors? Do you have brick-wall problems in your genealogy research? If so – plan on joining with GenealogyBlog Editor, Leland K. Meitzler, and Donna Potter Phillips at the 33rd annual Salt Lake Christmas Tour to the Family History Library this December.
The Salt Lake Christmas tour is known for having the highest percentage of professional researchers per attendee of any Salt Lake research tour.
Why December? Early December is an ideal time to come to the Family History Library. The library isn’t crowded, as it is at other times of the year. The festivities in Salt Lake City are underway and the Christmas Tour Family is waiting with open arms for you to join them.
By joining us in Salt Lake City on a Salt Lake Christmas Tour, you will be in the right place – at the right time – to locate more ancestors than you may have ever found before.

September 22-25, 2017 – Dresden, Germany
The German Genealog Day is the largest gathering of ancestors in the German-speaking world. The 69th Genealogue Day will take place from 22-25 of September 2017 in Dresden. The wonderful cultural and provincial capital of Saxony offers a worthy setting for this event. Sponsored by Dresdner Verein für Genealogie eV, the subject of genealogy and family research in a modern and future-oriented way. The organizer is the German Association of Genealogical Associations.

The theme of the meeting is “Europe in our roots – Saxony and its neighbors.” There will be specialist lectures and workshops for advanced students, as well as a program for newcomers and beginners in the field of ancestral research.

They expect 500 trade-oriented visitors from all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland as well as about 1000 guests from Saxony.
