Family History Conference in Houston, Texas April 25, 2015

Howdy y'all. In case you didn't know, I now live in Texas. As such, I now am available to teach family history and scrapbooking classes in the area. My first opportunity to teach will be April 25, 2015 in the northeast corner of Houston, Texas at the Family History: Connecting Generations conference sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Registration is open to folks in the area until April 18th. Class sizes may be limited, so be sure to register early. There is no lunch provided, so be sure to bring something with you! Additionally, this conference is not just for adults. Teenagers are welcome and there are three classes specifically for them (meaning, adults can't register for them!!!). However, teens may nave interest in other class offerings and they are absolutely encouraged to take the class that best fits their needs and interests.

This conference has a wide variety of course offerings in three hours, so something should catch your interest. If you want to take one of my classes, they are:
  • Digitizing Grandma's Stuff: With an emphasis on scanning and photography (you've seen many such tips in my Treasure Chest Thursday series)
  • Writing Stories When No One Is Here to Tell Them: A demonstration on how to change the names, dates, and places on our charts into stories using the sources you have previously accessed. (My Narrative Project Series on this blog, in 45 minutes)

If you or anyone you know is in the local Houston area and wants to come, I'd love to see you there. Be sure to tell me you're a fan of A Patient Genealogist.

    1. Thanks Karen. I was just in Florida in February visiting the land of the mouse! How funny. Someday I might teach in a place near you. You never know!

    1. Woo-hoo! I hope you'll both like the classes we have planned.

      Feel free to catch me during the Open Lab portion. By then the stress of starting and running the conference, and teaching will have passed and I will be free to visit!
