Some of the Vendors Coming to Our Expos   
  National Genealogical Society  
The National Genealogical Society, a nonprofit organization founded in 1903, is the premier national society for everyone from the beginner to the most advanced family historian. Our annual conference in 2013 is in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Hotel & Conference Center (all under one roof) providing educational and networking opportunities for everyone from beginners to the experienced genealogist who aspires to certification.

Lisa Louise Cooke and the Genealogy Gems Podcast

Lisa Louise Cooke brings you the best research tips, interviews with expert genealogists, and inpiration for sharing your family history.  The Genealogy Gems Podcast is "genealogy the time!" Lisa will only be at the Arizona Expo, not the St. George Expo. 
History of the Saints 
From the same team who worked on the Joseph Smith Papers TV Series, comes History of the Saints, an ongoing television documentary series focused on the epic history of the Latter-day Saints. The first season commences with the martyrdom of Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet, and follows the Saints across the plains to Utah. Subsequent seasons discuss expansion and colonization of the West, development of Utah and more.

We look forward to seeing you in January at the Arizona Family History Expo and in February at the St. George Family History Expo. Our speakers and exhibitors will be phenomenal this year and you will be well fed for having attended. Let us help you in furthering your personal research with the latest in techniques and available tools.

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas Holiday Season and wish a marvelous New Year for all of you and your families.
