The 2015 OGS Conference Provides A Cure for NGSS: Non-Genealogical Spouse Syndrome

NGSS is a terrible thing. You’re an avid genealogist. Your significant other isn’t. Just the mention of genealogy causes their eyes to glass over, rapid breathing, hives…  What’s worse? The guilt. How can you justify heading off for a three-day genealogy getaway and leave your poor, afflicted spouse behind?

Fortunately, the 2015 Ohio Genealogical Society Conference provides a cure. While you’re off attending all of the great presentations that the conference has to offer (more about that in later posts), your significant other can relax in the comfort of your room at the Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square or use the free CBUS service to explore some of Columbus’ terrific downtown areas: German Village, the Brewery District, Short North, Italian Village and more.

Once the day is done, you can hop back on the CBUS together to enjoy a great dinner while you try and get your spouse interested in all the great things you learned that day.

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks and months for other great things the 2015 OGS Conference offers genealogists, and yes, their non-genealogical spouses.
