One Week to Colorado Family History Expos!

 A few weeks ago, I was all scheduled to attend the Houston, Oklahoma City and Albuquerque Family History Expos and had some issues that came up preventing me from going. But now I am scheduled to fly up to Colorado Springs for the 4th Annual Expo. Here is a clip from Holly Hansen about the upcoming Expo:

Family History Expos is returning to Colorado for our 4th Annual Expo. This year it will be held in Colorado Springs, Colorado, June 1-2, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza. Many of you are already registered and we look forward to seeing you there. We have a fantastic program prepared for you. Details available online at

If you have not taken time to register yet, I recommend you do so now in order to save money, as the price will go up at the door.

For those of you who are members of societies, genealogy clubs, library groups, historical associations, and other interested groups please share this announcement with your membership. We want to be sure everyone who may benefit from this event has a chance to hear about it and attend if they’d like to.
