Nebraska ... get ready for the Family History Expo

The Midwest Family History Expo will be held September 6th and 7th at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Kearney, Nebraska.  This is the second year the Expo has been at this location.  Nebraska genealogists will find it a rewarding experience.

The Holiday Inn Convention Center is located at 110 South Second Avenue in Kearney.  Check out the web site for how to contact the hotel for room reservations.  You can register online for the Expo and save money.  The full registration is $69 ... a real bargain considering that gets you in for two days of lectures by top-notch genealogists and presenters.  If you pay at the door, it is $99.

James L. Tanner is the keynote speaker.  He will be presenting an entertaining message, Top 10 Techniques:  Fishing for Ancestors & Other Persons of Interest.  During the two days, you can attend classes ranging from how to use the flip-pal, using the FamilySearch catalog, finding German ancestors,  researching Swedish ancestors, the state and territorial census, land records to military records.

There will be vendors and door prizes.  Plan on meeting old friends and making new genealogy friends.     This is a great event to get you jump-started with your research.  This is definitely the place for genealogists!!

See you in Kearney ... yes, I am one of the presenters.
