Tucson Family History Fair February 25, 2017

The Tucson Family History Fair will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 6901 E. Kenyon (south of Broadway and west of Kolb).

This annual event is free and open to the public.  Seven classes will run simultaneously each hour from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. with a one hour break for lunch on your own (tables will be available). Displays, individual help, water, and snacks will be available in the Cultural Hall from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. One-on-one support will be provided at the Family History Center from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Several new classes will be offered this year, mostly on researching outside the United States. Countries of interest include Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, and the United Kingdom. Some of the most popular classes will be offered again, including the DNA classes updated with new discoveries and technology since last year.

PCGS has for many years partnered with the Tucson Family History Center for this event. Our members teach classes and provide great displays in the Cultural Hall.

The Tucson Family History Center will post the schedule, class descriptions, and links to any handouts that you can print in advance of the Fair. Please check the Tucson Arizona Family History Center wiki page periodically for those additions. Handouts will not be available at the event, please print them out and bring them with you. The website can be reached by clicking here or by entering "Tucson Family History Center" in your browser's search engine.

Remember, this event is FREE and open to the public. Plan to spend a day of learning with us and fellow researchers.

UPDATE January 6, 2017: The tentative schedule is posted on the Family History Center website. Click here to view and print.
