2009 Family Trees and Ancestries Conference (FREE!)

The 2009 Family Trees and Ancestries, which is a FREE genealogy/family history conference sponsored by the Spokane, Washington North Stake LDS Church, will be held this coming Saturday, March 28th from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the North Stake LDS Church, 401 W. Regina Ave., Spokane.

You can get directions, read about the speakers, look at the schedule (there are three session times and 10 classes to choose from), and register online at While the website says the registration deadline is today, March 22nd, I just received news that they will accept registration throughout this coming week. However, if you would like to order a syllabus, you must place your order today.

The following EWGS members are part of the line up of speakers: Barbara Brazington will be speaking on "Using County and Local Histories in Research"; Shirley Penna-Oakes will present "What Have You Missed in Vital Records"; and Miriam Robbins Midkiff will give presentations of using the WorldVitalRecords and Footnote websites.

Unlike past Family Trees and Ancestries Conferences, the conference will only be held half a day and therefore, no lunch will be available. If you have never had an opportunity to check out a Family History Center or would like to get a friend interested in beginning their genealogy, please consider attending this free conference!
