Announcing Story@Home 2013

The following is from FamilySearch.

Story@Home 2013 Conference on Temple Square, February 1-2

Dear Family History Consultants and Center Directors,

You and your family matter-and so do your stories. That's the message of the Story@Home 2013 conference being held February 1-2 on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah. This event is sponsored by CherishBound and hosted by FamilySearch. The conference includes engaging presentations, hands-on workshops, and an "improv" event that focus on the power of stories in family history.

Family History Consultants, Center Directors, and their families can attend the full two-day event at the discounted price of $59 per person. To get the discount, use the promo code Family2013 during the registration checkout process. (You will register at the CherishBound registration site before entering the code.)

"No matter how you tell your stories-through your family history, at your child's bedside, on your blog, or from a stage-your stories matter." The goal of the two-day conference is to provide engaging presentations and practical tools that will help attendees connect their families through stories.

The Story@Home conference aims to help you share stories. Whether you're just starting on your family history or already know a lot of the leaves on your family tree, a compelling account of their life experiences and character traits will help you share their legacy.

The conference offers fun and informative activities:

•Enjoy popular presenters, award-winning storytellers, and recognized experts.
•Attend hands-on workshops.
•Record one of your own family history stories.
•Learn how to gather, record, share, and publish your personal and family history.
•Discover how to weave family history into your stories.
•Start a blog or get tips on other online social media.

Social media is a big part of the conference and is a perfect connection to storytelling and family history. Your Homebased Mom blogger Leigh Anne observes that blogging "has become a record of our family history. The history we are making right now...blogging was just a natural extension of that love for preserving our family's history-another way to record and tell our family's story."

Want to put your own storytelling skills to the test? Then the StorySlam concert is for you. The StorySlam gives attendees a chance to showcase their stories and new skills through an "improv" storytelling contest. Think of it as karaoke for stories. It's fun, fast, and it's audience participation to the max.

The evening will be capped by selected performances from conference presenters.
