February 8-9 -- Family History Expo 2008 at St. George Utah

The St. George, Utah Family History Expo has become one of the best regional genealogy conference each year. The 2008 conference is on Friday and Saturday, 8-9 February, in the Dixie Center in St. George.

Pre-Registration for the conference is $60.00, and at the door it costs $65.00. A registration packet, name tag, CD syllabus, and a goody bag are included in cost of registration. They are also offering a printed syllabus to anybody for $24.97. The details are at http://www.myancestorsfound.com/events/upcoming.php?event_id=1.

Many world-class speakers are making presentations at this Expo -- see the list at http://www.myancestorsfound.com/events/event_speakers.php?event_id=1. There are 10 time periods, and 8 tracks in each time period.

Beau Sharbrough will be the keynote speaker on Friday morning, and Jean Wilcox Hibben will be the banquet speaker on Friday night.

It looks like all of the genealogy software companies and the database providers will be in the exhibition area.

The really neat thing about this conference is that it is just an hour away from Las Vegas. Southern California attendees could have a few days in Vegas before or after the conference.
