Resources for Family History Consultants - Family History Fair

To: Family history consultants and center directors on the Wasatch Front

Dear Family History Consultant,

In an effort to assist you in your calling, we want to make you aware of a family history fair that is coming up in the Bountiful, Utah, area. Information at this fair may benefit you in helping members find their ancestors.

The South Davis Family History Fair will be held Saturday, March 7, 2009, at Bountiful High School, 695 South Orchard Drive, Bountiful, Utah. The theme for the fair is "Walk with Me in White" (Revelation 3:4). The Fair will begin at 8:00 A.M. with a keynote address by Don R. Anderson, Director of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and also Director of the Church's Worldwide FamilySearch Support.

Participants may choose from 90 classes—geared to beginning, intermediate, or advanced levels of experience. New this year: Four of these classes will be taught in Spanish. Meanwhile, vendors will display a variety of genealogy aids in the gymnasium, and a sack lunch will be served in the cafeteria.

The Fair is sponsored by eleven stakes in the South Davis, Utah area. Patrons within those stakes should register through their family history consultants. Patrons outside those stakes may register by downloading the registration form available at

Please note that there are five classes specifically for family history consultants, as well as three classes for priesthood leaders.

The time to preregister has passed, so please register at the door (beginning at 7:00 A.M. on March 7th). The registration fee for this fair is $12.00. There is no guarantee that you will receive a syllabus.
