The Salt Lake City Family History Expo is Coming!

Press Release from Family History Expo:
A massive family reunion will descend on Sandy, Utah, Aug. 28 and 29. All relatives – dead and alive – are invited to the 2009 Salt Lake City, Utah Family History Expo! This event is an opportunity for everyone to connect with the past, present and future through family history research.


You really can hang out with your great-great grandmother by reading the journals she kept and shared through public archives. You’ll see the family resemblance when you stumble across great-great grandfather’s childhood photograph. You’ll gasp when you learn Uncle Roy spent the better part of 1889 in the pokey for playing cards. Best of all, you will finally understand the traditions, perceptions, emotions, genetics and very origins of the family you have loved for a lifetime and yet never really known.


Family history opens doors to the past to shed light on the future. Now is the time to “learn the tech to trace your roots.” Connect with living relatives in search of the same family information you are mining. It’s amazing when new relationships blossom over a common goal and shared bloodline. The kindred spirit is real.
