26 July 2010
The annual Salt Lake City Family History Expo (which is actually held right here in Sandy, Utah) is coming August 27-28, 2010 to the Sandy Expo Center, 9575 South State Street. The Expo is presented by Family History Expos (a private company) which does a fantastic job with their conferences.
There will be over 100 classes presented by more than 50 national and local speakers as well as staff from the Family History Center in Salt Lake. Classes range from the beginner to advanced topics so don't think you know too little or too much! You will learn about the latest techniques and technologies being used in genealogical research. You can read more about it and check the class schedule at www.fhexpos.com/expos/.
Exhibitors from throughout the U.S. will teach about their latest products and services. FamilySearch affiliated software vendors will be there to help teach you how to interact with new FamilySearch using their products using a "hands-on" approach.
You can attend the keynote address and visit the exhibit hall without any cost. However, I highly recommend you attend both days if at all possible. It's very much worth the minimal cost to attend. Register quickly because the the Early Bird registration is only good for the remainder of July.
FamilySearch will be offering four extra free classes for FH Consultants, Stake Extraction/Indexing Directors and assistants, and Priesthood Leaders.
Get together with your friends, neighbors and ward members and plan to attend the conference this year!
