Bring your family to explore your roots: the Utah Genealogical Association Fall 2012 Conference will be a new kind of event for teens and adults.  Classes, vendors, and activities will involve all experience and interest levels.  Activities will be available for children or grandchildren of conference participants (accompanied by participant)  from 1:00PM until 4:00PM Saturday.

This fall we've focused on a family-friendly conference to enhance the record numbers this year with teenage involvement at the Riverton FamilySearch Center, the Family History Library, and in indexing the 1940 census.  There are two hours of classes Friday evening on the latest technology and getting started as a beginner that are perfect for genealogists and people just getting started.  With a fresh schedule and vendor's activity booths, this will be different than any genealogy conference you've ever seen or attended.
Lunches will be available for pre-order on both Friday and Saturday.  Pizza, drinks, and snacks will be available to purchase Friday evening.
