I had the opportunity to go to the week-long Family History Expo's Salt Lake Retreat this past week. It was the most awesome experience! There was one-on-one help with the top genealogy researchers at the LDS Family History Library; for a genealogist, it was a dream come true. Holly and the researchers are so knowlegeable and have so much information, and they can answer any question about where to look to break down your brick wall. It was amazing what they know and the help and advice they gave was priceless. It is one retreat that is truly worthwhile for all levels of genealogists.
First and foremost, thank you for a wonderful exposure to the many facets of genealogy. I really felt emersed in the many activities that took place. I'm hoping to be able to attend another conference "down the road."
What a great retreat! Thank you for putting this together. It was a marvelous experience.
One of the greatest strengths is the availability of the professionals as well as the diversity of same. Keep up the good work!
Arizona Family History Expo 2013
Was a very informative Expo all of you put on in Mesa. What a lot of work!!!
I really enjoyed it and learned SO MUCH. First one I've ever attended and it was a fun experience.
I realized what a "beginner" I am compared to so many people there...but I am not discouraged.
Anyway, just thought I'd let you know that for me the event was better than I imagined.
Whoever said, "Family History is Easy!" didn't have my ancestors.
