Georgia Family History Expo Nov 11-12, 2011

From my e-mail in box.

We are excited to invite you to the second annual Georgia Family History Expo to be held again in the Gwinnett Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, Georgia, on November 11 and November 12, 2011.
Registration begins at 1:00 p.m., and the keynote address will begin at 2:00 p.m. This gives you plenty of time to check out exhibits before the program begins.

The exhibit hall is one of the best parts of the expo. Be sure to tell your friends and those curious about the expo but not committed to classes that the hall is open and free to the public. There will be excellent displays available for browsing in the exhibit hall.

Family History Expos’ Bloggers of Honor will be tweeting and blogging about the expo. You can follow the buzz by going to @FHExpos and searching on #fhexpo.
The opening keynote speaker will be M. Bridget Cook, who will speak on “Taking the Tiger by the Tail: Tackling Your Personal History with Creativity, Enthusiasm, Integrity, and Skill.” Bridget will share inspiring stories of human nature and teach attendees how to write their own lasting legacy.
The closing keynote speaker will be Holly T. Hansen, president of Family History Expos, Inc. Through Family History Expos, Holly has helped thousands understand techniques and technology that they can use to trace their roots in today's ever-changing technological environment.
Over 50 classes will be available and will cover a range of topics such as research tips, online resources, helps for writing personal histories, recent updates in FamilySearch (shared by staff from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah), and much more. You can review the class schedule at
Exhibitors from throughout the U.S. will teach about the latest products and services available in the industry. Representatives from various genealogical societies will also be on site.
There is no cost for attending the keynote addresses, visiting the exhibit hall, or attending the three free classes on Saturday morning for family history consultants, stake directors and assistants, and priesthood leaders.
General questions relating to the expo should be directed to:
