BYU Conference on Family History and Genealogy 2017

I fully realize that we are entering the week of RootsTech 2017, but for those of you who would like to attend a quality genealogy conference but can't make it to RootsTech, I strongly suggest the BYU Conference on Family History and Genealogy. This is the 49th year that this conference has been held on the Brigham Young University Campus in beautiful Provo, Utah. Unless you are a winter sports enthusiast, Provo in July is much nicer to visit than Salt Lake City in the middle of the Winter.

The emphasis of the conference is on genealogy and the presenters are exceptionally well qualified. The Conference is being held in the BYU Conference Center. Unfortunately, the Center is undergoing a major expansion and there will still be construction activities at the time of the Conference. But BYU has made arrangements to minimize the effects of the construction with special provisions for parking.

The 49th annual BYU Conference on Family History and Genealogy will offer more than 100 classes, allowing participants to gain new skills and helpful information. Class topics include:
  • Youth and Genealogy
  • LDS Family History Callings
  • FamilySearch Family Tree
  • DNA Research
  • Google Genealogy
  • ICAPGen
  • U.S. Research
  • Methodology
  • International Research
  • Scandinavian Research
