Syllabus materials for MAF Family History Expos

From: Suzanne
DearMYRTLE,
I am wondering if it is possible to buy the CD of the MyAncestorsFound Family History Expo at St. George. We live too far away to attend and would like to obtain one if possible. Thanks for your attention to my request.

DearSUZANNE,
Indeed, syllabus materials from previous MyAncestorsFound (MAF) Family History Expos (and Jamborees) are available for purchase through their website www.myancestorsfound.com . MAF President Holly Hansen said it best when suggesting we consider this syllabus a genealogical course manual to use throughout the coming year until we gather again for the next Expo.

If you'd like to view video reports from the St. George Expo, find links in Ol' Myrt's blog entry titled Video from St. George Expo.
