I received this by e-mail yesterday from the National Genealogical Society. If you’ve been looking for a good time to visit the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, you might consider going for both the library and a national conference You may find that the FHL will be very busy with other convention attendees, but the library staff will also be expecting the crowds and will probably be able to accommodate the additional traffic.
Mark your Calendar for the 2010 Family History Conference, “Follow Your Ancestral Trail”, which will be held 28 April—1 May 2010, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Whether your family helped settle the nation, migrated across the country, stayed in the same place, or recently arrived in America, this conference has much to offer. A few examples of the Family History Conference’s diverse program offerings include the International Workshops which will focus on researching the cultural records of other countries through lectures, research, and problem solving; the Evening Celebration of Family History, which will incorporate a multimedia tribute to family history, a special guest speaker, and a mini-concert by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir; and Ask An Expert, where the Utah Genealogical Association will sponsor twenty minute family history consultations to registered attendees.
