Family History Expos Goes Virtual

Are you familiar with Family History Expos? This group organized conferences all over the country for a number of years. Today they are taking advantage of the opportunities online services provide and have gone virtual. It’s not just expos either. To steal a quote from Emeril Lagasse, they have “kicked it up a notch”.  Today’s services include:

  • GenTeacher – a growing series of recorded classes that you can view when it is convenient for you. Each lesson also includes a downloadable research guide. These lessons cost $9.95.
  • Ask-the-Pros Q&A are live events covering a specific topic. The topic for the session scheduled on August 29th is Beginning Research – Probate. Attendees are encouraged to submit questions ahead of time so the researcher can give you an in-depth answer.
  • Make sure you check out the Shop too. You’ll find books, charts, forms and lots more.

Their first conference – Pirates of the Pedigree – is scheduled for October 15-20, 2018. Not only is there an impressive agenda, there will also be a virtual exhibit hall and door prizes. Registration is open and early birds can register for $69. After September 3, 2018, the fee goes up to $99.
