Guess what? We’re sponsoring ourselves a genealogy conference! Family Tree Magazine
is the key sponsor for the fourth annual Family History Expo
, Feb. 8 and 9 in St. George, Utah.
The conference (formerly the Genealogy and Family Heritage Jamboree) draws speakers from all over the United States, including Trace Your Roots With DNA
co-author and Ancestry.com
historian Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak, Reading Early American Handwriting
author Kip Sperry, DearMYRTLE
blogger Pat Richley, World Vital Records
president David Lifferth, RootsMagic
president Bruce Buzbee and others.
The exhibit hall will feature more than 60 exhibitors, including Family Tree Magazine
in booth 419. Each attendee gets a free Family Tree Magazine, plus chances to win prizes such as subscriptions and The Family Tree Resource Book for Genealogists
(Family Tree Books, $29.99).
Registration costs $60 in advance (sign up online at MyAncestorsFound
) or $65 at the door.
Here’s a little extra incentive: Nestled in the southwest corner of Utah, St. George is a balmy 50 to 60 degrees in February, when those of us in more northern locales are shivering through bone-chilling temps. I thought you’d come around!
