- FAMILYROOTS 2006
CALGARY'S GENEALOGY EVENT OF THE YEAR
Most everyone on this mailing list knows that October 13 and 14 are going to be banner Fall days on our family history calendar this year.
The Alberta Family Histories Society hosts its biennial Expo Seminar - FamilyRoots 2006
The Planning Committee has been working hard for many months to make this the most successful, the most beneficial and the most exciting Seminar ever held in Calgary. The speakers chosen after very careful selection are experts in their field. Their topics are contemporary and reflect the concerns of many of our AFHS members, even those just getting started.
The keynote speaker, David Rencher from the Family History Library, Salt Lake City will electrify us when he tells us of the immensity of the ScanStone Project on which they have embarked. It will change our approach to genealogy forever. You can't afford to miss hearing him !
In order to achieve this 'dream' the Committee needs the support of every family history enthusiast that sees this message. For a start, click on our website here http://www.family-roots.ca
We encourage you to explore this immensely informative site. Click on the 'Talks' and consider which of the wide range of topics you find of interest. 'Click' on the title of the talks and read the biographies of our outstanding speakers and a summary of the presentation they will give.
'Click' on the Displays and see what a wealth of resources is to be there to serve you. You will see software running, books and other aids to peruse and purchase and specialists in nearly every field of genealogy. Never have we assembled such a storehouse of help.
