I am so glad to hear that Family History Expos is back online, and even better than ever. As you may know, recently FHExpo suffered a true business disaster when their web hosting provider suffered an accident which lost the FHExpo website and subscriber list. Holly Hansen, President of FHExpo, never lost a beat and kept the scheduled Expos running smoothly, and the new website is proof that “the show will go on.”
Family History Expos is now rebuilding their subscription and participant database, and offering a FREE digital copy of their interviewing guide, “Life in Your Town.” It’s a nice perk for taking a few minutes to stay in the FHExpo loop, and I strongly urge you to join the mailing list and stay informed about Expos that may be scheduled near your hometown.
My participation as a Blogger of Honor at the St. George Expo in February convinced me that these regional conferences are a definite MUST when they are in your area, and a strong pull even when travel is necessary.
Upcoming Family History Expos are scheduled for –
Loveland, Colorado – June 25-26
Kansas City, Missouri – July 30-31
Salt Lake City, Utah – August 27-28
Pleasanton, California – October 8-9
In addition, two research retreats will be held at the Salt Lake City Family History Library, April 12-17 and October 25-30.
I have family roots in Colorado and Kansas City, and hope to be able to attend at least one of these events. Be sure to register for the mailing list to keep up on when a Family History Expo event will be coming to a town near you!
