Do you have ancestral roots in Armenia? Would you like to learn more about tracing them? Consider coming to the conference being held at the Armenian Museum and Library of American in Watertown, MA on April 9th and 10th. A conference is the perfect place to take workshops and to meet experienced researchers who can help you. And this will be your first opportunity ever to attend a conference dedicated solely to Armenian family research. If you made inquires in the past and were told Armenian records do not exist, they do. Advances in technology have made items available that were thought to be totally inaccessible. Want more information? I have listed some links below. I would, however, start with this excellent article “Tracing Family Roots: First Armenian Genealogy Conference Planned for April” written by the staff of the Armenian Weekly in Watertown. It gives you a very good idea of what to expect at the conference. Just click on the title above and you can read the article for yourself.
