Escondido Family History Fair is March 3

The biggest annual San Diego County genealogy conference is a Family History Fair hosted by the Escondido South Stake of the LDS church. The next Fair will be on 3 March 2007. The Fair web site is

People can register for the conference, which is free to attend, using the form here. If you wish to reserve a syllabus of the conference, or order a box lunch, you can do that also (those links aren't active right now, it seems) for a fee.

The keynote speaker for this conference will be Kory Meyerink. The faculty includes Beth McCarty, Barbara Renick, Richard Wilson, Alan Jones, Cassandra Selzer, Dee Sallenbach, Ann Montgomery and Daniel Bartosz. There are usually five or six sessions in each hour between 10 AM and 4 PM.

Many of the San Diego County genealogy and heritage societies have a booth at the Fair to display their wares. Some commercial vendors and book sellers also attend, although sales cannot occur on the LDS property.

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society has a booth at the Fair - please stop by and meet me and my colleagues.
