St. George Family History Expo – February 25-26, 2011

I can't believe it has been almost a year since the last Family History Expo in St. George, Utah. Time flies!

This year's Family History Expo is February 25-26, 2011 at the Dixie Center. This year's theme for FHExpos is Where O'l Dogs Learn New Tricks. I am very excited about the theme for this year. As many of you know I focus a lot of my blog posts and topics on using technology to be able to find our ancestors. Technology has made genealogy so much easier and convenient and I think it is great how many older generations are willing and excited to learn how to use it! Anytime my grandma asks if I will show her how to do something on the computer I am more than willing, and the same goes for anyone else who is wanting to learn new techniques and resources using computers, mobile devices and the Internet. At this year's conference I am going to be teaching three classes, participating as a Blogger of Honor, excited to learn of more resources and techniques as well as one of my favorite parts about these conferences - meeting fellow genealogists and have the opportunity to network with you. The classes I will be teaching this year are:
  • How to Produce a Family History CD
  • Mobile Apps for Genealogy
  • Mac Genealogy - Tools for Researching on Your Apple Computer
Over the next week or so I will be sharing some posts on my classes and some things you can expect to learn while attending the conference. I will also soon be announcing a contest to give away two free registration tickets to the conference. Stay tuned for contest details!

  1. Info on new mobile apps sounds interesting. Wish there was one for NFS.

  2. Kevin,

    There is an app that works with the New.FamilySearch.org database. It is called Mobile Tree. You can read more about it in a previous article I published last year.
