BYU Family History and Genealogy Conference - Day 3

Thursday, 31 July 2014 was the third day for the BYU Family History & Genealogy Conference. There is one more day left to go. I'm getting a little smarter using my camera so there are more pictures today. Sorry to not give you more details on the classes right now. I just run out of time after the class to write up all the great things I have been learning. The variety and selection of classes has been great!

Here's today's slideshow.

BYU Family History & Genealogy Conference - Day 2

Wednesday, 30 July 2014 was the second day for the BYU Family History & Genealogy Conference. I'm already tired and there are two more days to go!  This was the first day with all the vendors there. They will all be there again tomorrow, so stop by if you have a chance. Only a few vendors in the hallway will be there on Friday.

My son Phil stayed home to recover from yesterday. He's getting over a recent surgery and our 10 hours adventure Tuesday was a little too much. Sadly you have to put up with my photo taking "skills". The only class I attended and didn't take photographs in was with the Ancestry Insider. I have to protect his identity after-all.

Here's today's slideshow.
