The 2013 St. George, UT Family History Expo is coming back to St. George, Utah in February. They will celebrate their 10th anniversary this year at the Dixie Center. There will be a lot of speakers during the expo; therefore, I have all the details you will need to get the most from the event.
The theme this year will be “Top 10 Techniques: Fishing for Ancestors & Other Persons of Interest.” This year, the Family History Expo will focus on the reality of computer coming of age. How iPads, Smart Phones, and Androids are all rage.
Keynote speaker for this year’s expo will be James L Tanner. He will open the expo with a presentation called “Top 10 Techniques: Fishing for Ancestors & Other Persons of Interest.” Tanner is an active genealogical researcher who shares his findings and knowledge through his Genealogy’s Star Blog. Tanner is also the author of “The Guide to Family Search Online.”
Other speakers will include Baerbel K Johnson (Wha’ts New in German Research on the Internet?), Joleen Aitchison (Go Fish, and Cast Your Line Here First), L. A. Hibben (10 Reasons to Preserve Your Family Heritage and One Great Way to Do It!), Tom Underhill (Passwords for Humans: 5 Easy Steps for Greater Password Security), Diahan Southard (Autosomal DNA: Sleuthing and Searching), and many more.
