"Pirates of the Pedigree" Virtual Conference on 15-20 October 2018

Family History Expos is planning a virtual conference called "Pirates of the Pedigree" for October 15 to 20, 2018 (Monday to Saturday). 

The conference description is:
"We have chosen "Pirates of the Pedigree" as our theme for this amazing event. With the advent of the internet and digital documents, we are surrounded in a virtual sea of opportunity. But too often the ancestor you are seeking is lost in the records. At this Expo, we will share experiences, resources, and techniques that will assist you in discovering which records may hold the clues to locating the correct ancestor from all the rest. 
After attending this event, you will know how to recognize those "Pirates" that would steal your treasured lineage. Let the internet connect family historians from distant lands to tackle the challenges we all face. 
This is a totally online event. Classes will be broadcast. Sponsor and Vendor links allow you to visit their website or special event page quickly. Visit websites, blogs, and social media sites where you can learn about the resources and services available to help you successfully and accurately research your family history. 
Paid registered attendees receive the following with their registration:
  • Registration gift packet of digital fun and educational items donated by our Sponsors and Vendors
  • Access to view and print class handouts
  • Access to view recorded classes after the Expo is over
  • Eligible to win door prizes
Public viewing of some classes will be available at no cost. Those attending free classes offered without registration will enjoy the slideshow presentation of the presenter only. To view classes at no cost, simply click the link provided in the Agenda (check in early to assure yourself a spot in the broadcast). The Agenda is in process and is expected to be completed in May.
This virtual conference will cost $69 before 3 September, and $99 after 3 September. 

The speakers and subject list is long - you can see it (scroll down to see the list) at   https://www.familyhistoryexpos.com/viewevent/index/190/#eg

 All times are Mountain Time (Eastern time add 2 hours, Pacific time subtract one hour).

One of the highlights of this conference is the frequent appearance of the late Ruth Ellen Maness through recorded presentations, all showing (somehow) at 10 p.m.  Paid registered attendees will be able to view all of the classes after the event.
