Ogden FamilySearch Library 2014 Conference - 13 Sep 2014

The following is from the Ogden FamilySearch Library.

The Ogden Family History Conference “Of Roots and Branches” - September 13, 2014 at the Weber State University Shepherd Union Building. 

The conference is totally free. 

There will be over 65 classes taught by many well-known presenters. New this year is a special track for youth, with classes taught by youth, and 1:1 family history help. Spanish research classes will be taught in Spanish. 

Registration begins at 7:30 AM. The Keynote address will begin at 8:30. Merrill White of Family Search and Ogden Temple President Froerer will be our keynote speakers.  We are excited to have them open our conference and set the tone for the days activities.

Classes will be held from 10:00-4:00. 

Our presenters include generous professionals, teachers from the Salt Lake Family History Library and our own Ogden FamilySearch Library, and those knowledgeable sellers of family history books and software.

We project that over 60 classes will be taught to about 1,000 participants.

During each of our five periods, we will have classes for beginners, our non-gray haired genealogists, Spanish speakers and more advanced family historians.  We will also offer more challenging research based classes for others who are interested in foreign research. Presenters from software companies will teach you how to use the products that will be for sale at conference prices.
Change seems to be the name of the family history game, so join us to stay up to date on all the latest and greatest programs and search strategies. Learn to Find, Organize, Preserve, and Share your Family History.
We are excited to especially welcome the youth that will be the cutting edge for progress in future family history.  We will offer beginning tracks,Spanish speaking tracks and of course, all religions and everyone who loves (or is learning to love) family history is welcome.
This Annual Conference is made possible by WSU History Department, the volunteers from the community and the Ogden FamilySearch Library: ogdenfsl.org
There will be a vendor area. Food will be available from food court vendors, or you can bring your own lunch. You may park in any lot except for especially reserved spaces.

Thanks for consistently posting about local fairs and conferences as well as FamilySearch news.

I found out about this Ogden event because of your blog and I had a good time there yesterday.
