NGS2015: Live Streaming classes unearthed

DearREADERS,
Just made the hotel reservation for St. Charles, Missouri in prep for attending the National Genealogical Society's annual Family History Conference 13-16 May 2015. Now I'm planning my NGS classes and AmbushCAM schedule each day. Whilst exploring the site, I noticed NGS is offering live streaming, though for a fee.
 
Find out more: www.NGSGenealogy.org

  • Track One: The Immigration and Naturalization Process ($65 member, $80 non-member)
  • Track two: Methodology Techniques ($65 member, $80 non-member)
  •  Bundled Package: Track One and Track Two ($115 member, $145 non-member)
It took a little work, but I figured out how to determine what's live streamed.
  1. Go to the online version of the conference program: http://conference.ngsgenealogy.org/agenda/
  2. Select ALL for your filter, not 25, the default.
  3. As the program directions indicate, (LS) next to a session title indicates the session is being live streamed. 
Since using the search box for "(LS)" without quote marks didn't work, I was able to cobble the following lists:

Tuesday Live Streams, Thursday, 14 May 2015, Central US (Chicago) Time Zone. If you need a time zone converter, Ol' Myrt here recommends: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html. Judging by the titles, this is possibly Track One: The immigration and naturalization Process ($65 member, $80 non-member).
Friday Live Streams, Friday, 15 May 2015, Central US (Chicago) Time Zone. If you need a time zone converter, Ol' Myrt here recommends: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html 
Judging by the titles, this is possibly Track two: Methodology Techniques ($65 member, $80 non-member).




Gosh, this is a great line up. Maybe Mr. Myrt and I should just stay home and watch the live stream? Nope, I'll see if I can catch these later and I'll be sure not to attend these in person.

And I do have blogger beads to distribute. 

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
