Computerized Genealogy Conference at BYU March 13-14

Genealogy experts and beginners can observe the latest in technology during the sixth annual Computerized Genealogy Conference on Thursday and Friday, March 13 and 14, at Brigham Young University.

Workshops, speakers and vendors will provide updated information and training on genealogical software programs, computer databases, e-mail and the Internet to help genealogists make better use of traditional research methods.

Workshops will also review existing computer programs and evaluate new programs genealogists may consider acquiring.

In addition to the workshops, hands-on labs will be offered on the evenings of the conference days and on Saturday, March 15, for an additional cost.

Cost is $115 for the two-day conference, with an additional $39 fee for each lab. Attendees must register for the entire conference to attend the lab sessions.

BYU benefits will cover the cost of the conference for full-time BYU employees and their spouses. Benefits will not cover the cost of the additional labs.

For more information or to register for the conference, contact BYU Conferences and Workshops at (801) 378-4853.
