Salt Lake City Family History Expo to Be Held in Sandy in August

The following is from FamilySearch.

Dear Family History Consultants, Priesthood Leaders, and Stake Directors:

We want to remind you of the upcoming Family History Expo event in Salt Lake City and also pass along some late-breaking information. Throughout the year we have been providing three key courses to consultants for free. We have just recently added a fourth free course. For this expo the new course will be squeezed in so that instead of three courses of consultant training between 8:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., there will be four. The courses are:

· The Joy of Family History: How to Inspire Members and Leaders

· Meeting the Support Needs of the Family History Community

· New Resources for Consultants: What They Are and Real Examples of How to Use Them

· Directing Indexing Efforts in Your Stake and Wards

The Family History Expo will be held August 27–28, 2010, at the South Towne Expo Center, 9575 South State Street, Sandy, Utah. The public is welcome in the exhibit area, and all who hold a family history calling, either at the stake or ward level, are welcome to attend any or all of the free training courses on Saturday, August 28.

Besides the free courses offered, over 100 additional classes will be presented by more than 30 national and local speakers as well as staff from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. With classes ranging from beginner to advanced topics, there is something for everyone. Many classes are dedicated to the latest techniques and technologies being used in genealogical research, as well as the most up-to-date information about different cultures being studied. You can review the class schedule and find out the cost of attending the classes by visiting

In addition, exhibitors from throughout the U.S. will teach about the latest products and services available in the industry. FamilySearch affiliated software vendors will also be on site and happy to help you test their products “hands on” with (FamilySearch Family Tree). Some of the products and services showcased will include genealogy magazines, hardware, software, wall charts, various genealogical societies, and research services.

The Salt Lake City Family History Expo could also be a great opportunity for the ward members you are working with to learn more about finding their ancestors. You may want to share information about the expo with them.
