Youth Discovery Day at RootsTech Genealogy Conference

RootsTech organizers have planned a day on Saturday February 8th for youth ages 12 to 18 to explore the fun side of family history at the country's biggest genealogy conference.  Free to the public, activities include 100s of vendors, help with recording family history stories, research help, photo scanning and popular speakers such as John Bytheway and the cast of Studio C. 

My son will be teaching a course for youth entitled "Get To Know Your Geezers" introducing beginners to the popular online resources for family history.  And don't forget to stop by our Family ChartMasters booth in the vendor's hall for free family history paper dolls that are perfect for telling family history stories.  

More information on Discovery Day activities for Youth can be found here.  Registration and information for the entire conference from February 6-8th can be found at
