The long-awaited (by me, at least) Colorado Family History Expo in Colorado Springs is finally almost here! I'm making my way there by car, bus, plane and - mini-van!
This Friday and Saturday, June 1st and 2nd, hundreds of family history enthusiasts will gather at the Crowne Plaza Colorado Springs. The Expo will open with a keynote address by Don R. Anderson, Senior Vice President for FamilySearch.
With the theme of "Your Family History Starts Here!," there will be literally dozens of learning opportunities for the attendees over the course of two days. With presentations ranging from beginner (Let's Get Started! with yours truly) to experienced (English, Swedish, Cherokee, German, to name a few specialties), there is something for everyone. Whether you're a beginner, or you've come up against a brick wall, or are looking to extend a line, this is the place to be.
Holly Hansen, President of Family History Expos, and an ultra-experienced genealogist, will present the closing keynote. Her addresses are always a special treat, as she shares some of her personal research experiences.
