ANNOUNCING THE 2016 Family History Conference sponsored by the Mesa AZ FamilySearch Library on Saturday, October 29, 2016, at the Tempe Institute of Religion on the ASU Campus, 1000 South McAllister Avenue in Tempe, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:10 p.m.
This year’s conference will feature a keynote address by James Tanner, a friend to our conference and respected family history guru.
Our theme is “Putting It All Together” and provides a wide variety of over 50 class choices for all types of learners, from beginners to the most advanced genealogists. Come and learn how to be more effective and efficient when doing your research. Learn to trace your roots with DNA. Learn to document your sources. Get specific information on various ways to research in specific countries. If you are new to family history, come learn the basics. Some of the most popular classes are repeated in an effort to accommodate everyone. Spend all day or come for a single class or two; you may attend a maximum of five classes.
Registration will begin online at www.mesafsl.org on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. At the time of registration, registrants will be given the opportunity to purchase lunch from Jason’s Deli. Otherwise, the conference is FREE. See you in October!
In the past, you were required to select the specific classes you plan to attend during the registration. Seats for each class is limited and registration closes for that class when it is full. As of this writing (September 14 @ 9:50 a.m.), registration had not yet been opened. However, this conference fills up very quickly so keep checking often in order to reserve a seat for the classes you really want to attend.
