St. George Family History Expo

I just spent two great days at the Family History Expo in St. George, Utah. It was a wonderful experience. I have no idea how many people attended, but they all seemed to be enjoying themselves and were very friendly.

The keynote address was inspiring. Glenn Rawson shared some very poignant true stories, which, coincidentally, took place near where I live. This made them come even more alive for me. He told a little about the new series in which he is involved.

Method or Madness - 25 Feb 2011
I got to make two presentations, and I actually had students! Since this is the first time I've made presentations in this type of venue, I really didn't know quite what to expect. But, it was a good experience; one I hope to repeat.

I got to take classes from some very knowledgeable individuals. I learned something in each of them. The exhibition hall was full of fabulous vendors. The place fairly buzzed with activity, especially between presentations. 

Holly Hansen and her staff made themselves available, were very helpful, kind and excited! I appreciate each of them. I am very glad to have had this opportunity. I'm really looking forward to another like it.

These are really great events. I would encourage anyone with an interest in genealogy and family history to attend. Even if you just think you might be interested, give it a shot. There is information at their site.
