Featured speakers will include Alan Mann of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, who will talk about “Useful New Sites and Services on the Internet,” and Dick Eastman, author of the weekly online periodical, “Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter,” who will address “Putting the Genes in Genealogy: A Serious Look at the New Role of the Family Historian in a DNA World.”

Representatives from the Family and Church History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also will be on hand to discuss the Church’s family history databases and programs.

The conference is sponsored by BYU Religious Education, the BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy, the BYU Computer Science Department, the LDS Family History Library, the BYU History Department and the BYU Division of Continuing Education.
