Ol’ Myrt is pleased to announce her upcoming participation in the BYU Computerized Family History and Genealogy Conference. From the conference web page we read:
“The eleventh annual Computerized Genealogy Conference at Brigham Young University is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 14 and 15, 2008. This conference is designed to be a how-to guide for everyone—beginning, intermediate, and advanced researchers. The focus of the conference is to help everyone learn how new computer programs and advancements in existing programs can mprove family history and genealogy work.
Some of the main presenters for this conference include Paul Allen, CEO of World Vital Records; Alan Mann, IT manager, Family History Library, Salt Lake City; Kory Meyerink, family history professor at BYU and vice president, ProGenealogist; Tim Sullivan, CEO of Ancestry; Rick Crume, author and family history presenter; and Pat Richley, creator of DearMYRTLE.
In addition, representatives from the Family and Church History Department will be discussing how to effectively use LDS Church family history programs. Also this year will be new classes by vendors of products that aid family history work. The conference is sponsored by the BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy, LDS Family History Library, and BYU’s Division of Continuing Education. Anyone with an interest in family history or genealogy is invited to attend and meet with fellow genealogists and computer enthusiasts.”
