We proudly announce the virtual Celtic Connections Conference program, available beginning July 31!
While the COVID-19 pandemic caused us to take a detour on our “Journey Home,” a new trail is even better. Learn from 11 outstanding speakers, 25 pre-recorded presentations, and live chats with the presenters.
Consider these advantages:
-On-demand presentations: No difficult decisions about which lecture to attend! All 25 pre-recorded presentations are available for you to view whenever you choose.
-Conference extended from July 31-August 31: Plenty of time to listen to any and all talks of interest to you (as long as you do so before August 31).
-Live chat sessions with the presenters: Opportunities for you to ask questions and interact with our speakers and other attendees.
-Safe, convenient and less expensive: No risky and costly travel, no reservations, no trip delays.
-Renowned genealogists cover a variety of topics: We’re excited to add DNA expert Maurice Gleeson to our slate of presenters! Read more by clicking on Program or Presenters above.
