Family History Expo Coming to Colorado Springs
For the past few years, along with Ken and Lureen Orchard, my husband and I have attended the Family History Expo in Loveland, Colorado in late June. This summer the Expo is moving to Colorado Springs and will be held from 1:30pm Friday, June 1 until 4:30pm on Saturday, June 2. This is great news for all of us in Canon City, as it's close enough that we wouldn't have to stay in the hotel if we choose to drive each day. The Expo will be held at the Crowne Plaza, 2886 South Circle Drive. Click on the photo above to go to the web site with more details. Early bird registration is $49 per person (for the ENTIRE conference!), before April 24. From April 25-May 31, registration will be $69, or at the door it is $99. You can register for a single day at $59 per day.
I'm very excited to read this news. The Expo is very well organized and is a genealogy conference that offers classes and presentations by some of the foremost experts in genealogy in the United States. Vendors also display their products that are useful to us as we do our family history research.
Look at this Family History Expos web site and see what all is offered at the Expo. More details will be available as the date nears. Mark your calendars, save your $49 and plan to attend. It would be terrific if we could have a good showing of Consultants from our Canon City Family History Center!
