Upcoming BYU Genealogy Conferences

The next BYU conferences pertaining to genealogy include the Conference on Computerized Family History and Genealogy Conference, the Family History Technology Workshop and the 2009 FamilySearch Developers Conference on March 12-14, 2009 at the BYU campus in Provo, Utah.

The 9th Annual Family History Technology Workshop is $75 ($85 walk-in) for registration and is one day, on March 12, 2009. This workshop provides a forum for presenting and discussing current and emerging research work on technology that supports family history and genealogy. Results should address technology problems whose solutions have the potential to improve family-history and genealogical research work. The format of the workshop will include a keynote speaker, panel discussions and technical presentations.

The twelfth annual Computerized Genealogy Conference is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14, 2009. 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 improve family history and genealogy work. The theme of this year's Conference is "Building a Lasting Legacy."

Early registration for the 2009 FamilySearch Developers Conference is $60.00 and $80.00 after February 27th. Registration online closes on March 10. The Conference is designed for family history and genealogy software developers to enable them to get in contact with others who are using similar development technologies, confronting common technical challenges, and to share clever solutions.

The 2009 FamilySearch Developers Conference is intended to allow developers to earn from FamilySearch engineers and community developers about the new FamilySearch Web Services (API), including the new Family Tree, RecordSearch, Identity, Authorities, and Catalog modules.
