Family Matters in Northern Utah
One of the truly great aspects of Utah is its family-friendly atmosphere. This week Sandy, Utah will provide a venue for the 2010 Salt Lake Family History Expo. The expo will be held Aug. 27-28 at the South Towne Exposition Center.
I am ever amazed by the number of people who appreciate family history research. I’m rarely amazed by the number of family-oriented activities available along the Wasatch Front. Traditional family values are a part of the Northern Utah culture and I’m proud to be raising my children here.
Take time to explore this event in Sandy, Utah! If you’re thinking about relocating to the area, the 2010 Salt Lake Family History Expo will give you a glimpse into the worlds or research, technology, families, and Utah residents. In a press release published by Family History Expos, the company’s founder and president, Holly T. Hansen said, “We’re here to embrace the future of history.” How sweet it is.
Did you know Salt Lake City is home to the famous Family History Library owned and operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? This massive collection is opened to the public and features access to the world’s largest collection of genealogical records? At this library you will find:
It’s absolutely free to use the library’s resources. In fact, about 2,500 visitors use this unique Utah resource every day. It’s enough to make you want to call Northern Utah “home,” isn’t it?

Family History Expo Brings Past to Life
Aug. 27-28, 2010
SALT LAKE CITY, UT— The 2010 Salt Lake Family History Expo, Aug. 27-28, will help bring the past to life with educational workshops, speakers, and exhibitors committed to teaching the art of family history research.
Nationally celebrated author, lecturer and researcher Thomas Jay Kemp will open the event at a free opening ceremony Aug. 27 at 8 a.m. at the event venue, South Towne Exposition Center, 9575 S. State Street in Sandy.
The American Library Association recently honored Kemp, the keynote speaker, with its lifetime achievement award known as the RUSA/GPC Award. Kemp was reportedly selected for his long-time leadership role in genealogy librarianship and his significant contributions to genealogy publications. He is well-known as one of genealogy’s primary librarians and authors. Many of his sources are classics known to librarians of all types.
“Families and historical preservation are such important elements in the Utah culture. Our Expos help people find themselves by finding their own family roots,” FHExpos President and Founder Holly T. Hansen said.
FHExpos is a Croydon, Utah-based company with nearly 10 years experience educating family historians and genealogists of all levels through family history expositions throughout the Western United States.
” I absolutely love to watch the lights turn on when a participant makes a life-changing discovery. That’s what it’s all about,” Hansen said.
Presenters are hand selected for their expertise in various areas of research, family history, and genealogy. Sessions are suitable for participants at all levels of genealogy experience.
An exhibit hall featuring hands-on demonstrations is free and opened to the public. Door prizes, samples, and give-away samples will be plentiful. A host of bloggers will be at the show sharing their knowledge with a major following via Facebook, Twitter, professional blogs, and other social networking sites.
The exhibit hall is free to the public, and registration for two full days of classes is available for only $65 in advance or $75 at the door. One day registration is $40. Registration and a full schedule is available on the company’s website at www.fhexpos.com. If you only have time of one or two classes register at the door for only $12 each class.
Industry Experts Lead the Way to Family History Research
Hansen said the most experienced professionals are invited to teach at FHExpos events. “We want to provide our participants with the latest and greatest tools and information out there. We’re not afraid of new technology and neither should our followers be afraid. We’re here to embrace the future of history,” she said.
Class titles will include, “Crossing the Ocean with the Internet,” FamilySearch 2010 and Beyond,” “Finding Your Female Ancestors,” “Genealogy Gifts and Games,” “Journey Takers: An Inside Look at Immigration Research,” “Finding Your Scottish Ancestors: What Do You Need to Do,” and more.
The event is sponsored by genealogy and family history giants including FamilySearch, Ancestry.com, RootsMagic, Legacy Family Tree, Family Insight, Generation Maps, Limited Edition Publishers, Ancestral Quest, and Flip Pal Mobile Scanners.
