Join Me on the Salt Lake Christmas Tour December 4-10, 2011

Salt Lake Christmas Tour

I’m inviting you to join me in Salt Lake City this December 4-10, 2011 on the Salt Lake Christmas Tour! Not only will you be able to attend fascinating genealogy classes taught be me and other genealogists, but you’ll have the Family History Library at your disposal the entire week since it is right next door! Also there will be genealogy experts on the tour to help you with your own research.

Here is a list of what I’ll be teaching during the week:

And besides learning more about genealogy and technology, I can guarantee that you will not meet a nicer group of fellow genealogists! What I love most is that this group at the Salt Lake Christmas Tour is just like family – even if you are a first time attendee! Click here to learn more.

December is a perfect time to be in Salt Lake City for genealogy research. The Family History Library is not crowded, there are many holiday events taking place in downtown Salt Lake City and the weather – compared to Chicago at least – is reasonable!  Now is the time to start dropping hints to your wife, your husband, Santa, etc. that the tour would make the perfect Christmas gift!!!
