Plan to Attend the Red Deer Family History Fair 2015

Mark your calendar!  Plan to attend!  21 March 2015 at the Bower Building of the LDS Church in south Red Deer.

Last year a very successful FH Fair was held in Red Deer – 200 people attended – but  . . . .  it was very cold . . .  So we took your feedback and made some changes – so that this year the FH Fair will be even better.

First – the FH Fair is one month later – hopefully it will not be as cold in late March as it was in February last year!!!  But then this is Alberta!  We will work hard to make sure there are no technical problems with the presentations .

Second – participants asked for more live sessions – and there will be one live session in every time block.

Third – participants suggested that the day was a little too long  . . . .  so this year it will be a little shorter – 4 sessions instead of 5.

Finally – Last year we were told that the lunch was great but the time to eat was too short – this year the time to eat will be longer – and we have the same wonderful people providing the food!

There will be 4 time blocks in the day – each an hour long – so you can attend 4 classes.  In each time block there will be one live presentation and a choice of 2 video presentations from the RootsTech 2015 Conference.

Like last year the Family History Centre will be open all day for participants wanting to do research or get help with research questions.

New this year will be a session for beginners and a session on solving brick walls.

Watch this blog and http://rdroots.wordpress.com/   for details on topics and speakers . . . .   and how to register.  Like last year the registration including lunch will be free.  Members of the Red Deer Stake of the LDS Church and the Red Deer Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society are supporting the event.

Plan to attend – and invite your friends!
