Midwest Family History Expo 2013

For the second year the Family History Expo is returning to Kearney, Nebraska.  This event will be held on September 6th and 7th at the Holiday Inn Convention Center, 110 South Second Avenue in Kearney, NE; phone 308-237-5971.

The Expo is a great place to learn, share and create memories.   This is the 10th Anniversary of the Family History Expo and owner, Holly Hansen, is giving complimentary booths to all Nebraska societies that would like to display fliers and handouts or sell their books.

Keynote speaker James L. Tanner will get everybody excited about locating records and putting their minds to work about genealogy.  He wrote the book The Guide to FamilySearch Online and will also be doing a number of lectures.

Keynote Speaker

For those who are anxious to know about Swedish, Scandinavian and German research, professional speakers will guide them through the process.  Some of us will be speaking on United States records.  I will be presenting three lectures per day on military records, doing good research, land records, territorial and state census, Czech ancestry and maps.

As usual, there will be an Ask The Pro area.  It's free ... just bring your questions.  Between classes, you will want to visit the vendors and visit with others about genealogy.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the Family History Expo in Kearney!
