NextGen In Action!

The NextGen Genealogy Network is excited to launch our latest initiative – NextGen In Action!

We want to see photos of young genealogists like yourselves in action – researching at a repository, visiting the cemeteries, at genealogical conferences – you name it!

Snap a photo of yourself holding the ‘I am NextGen’ sign or wearing some NextGen merchandise (found at our Zazzle store).

Post it any of our social media sites using the hashtag #nextgeninaction, or email us at Once a month, all your NextGen in action photos will be posted on our blog.

Below are a couple of examples from our leadership team

It’s Time

Let’s start with a story.


It was two years ago that a group of young genealogists connected on Twitter and made the decision to create an organization in the genealogy community for other young professionals like themselves. A Facebook group doubled, then tripled, then quadrupled in size, and soon additional collaboration was needed to turn the vision of the NextGen Genealogy Network into a reality.



Today, the NextGen Genealogy Network remains true to its original mission.


Initially developed as a society for Millennials or Gen Y, NGGN continues to focus on building connections and fostering engagement among young professionals in the genealogy community – those between the ages of approximately twenty and forty. However, all are welcome to subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on social media, take part in our online discussions, and attend our social events, regardless of age.


With that in mind, we invite you to subscribe to our newsletter and stay up-to-date with the next generation of genealogists. We want you to submit an #iamnextgen selfie, respond to our questionnaire, and share our badge on social media. We would love to have you volunteer with us and become active in our community.


Follow our blog for fresh and engaging monthly articles and videos featuring content relevant to the young genealogist, and get to know the members of our worldwide community on a personal level through the Featured Face of NextGen.


It’s time for the next generation of genealogists to connect.
