Brigham Young University will host the 11th Annual Computerized Family History and Genealogy Conference Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14, at the BYU Conference Center located northeast of the Marriott Center.

For fees or additional program and registration information, visit familyhistoryconferences.byu.edu, or contact John Best at (801) 422-2048 or john.best@byu.edu.

This conference is designed to be a “how-to guide” for beginning to advanced researchers. More than 50 classes will be available to help participants learn about advancements in computer programs, research techniques, managing genealogical databases, digital photographs and using the Internet for family history research.

More than 650 participants attended the conference last year.

Some of the main presenters for this year's conference include Susan Easton Black, professor of Church history and doctrine at BYU; Alan Mann, FamilySearch Community Services for the LDS Church; Kory Meyerink, adjunct religion and family history professor for BYU and vice president of ProGenealogists; and Rick Crume, author and family history presenter.

In addition, representatives from BYU’s Church history faculty will discuss how to effectively use LDS Church family history programs. Classes will be held by vendors of products that aid in family history work.

This conference is sponsored by the BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy, the LDS Family History Library, FamilySearch and BYU’s Division of Continuing Education.
