BYU genealogy gathering planned

PROVO, Utah — The 10th annual Computerized Genealogy Conference at BYU will be held Friday and Saturday, March 16 and 17, 2007.

Featured presenters will be Alan Mann, Family History Library Salt Lake City; and Dick Eastman, author of a weekly online periodical. Representatives from the Family and Church History Department will introduce new Church family history databases and programs. Topics at this year's conference will include improvements in genealogy software, managing genealogical databases, and finding useful tools on the Internet. This conference is designed to be a how-to guide for everyone — beginning, intermediate, and advanced researchers.

Last year, more than 600 participants attended the computer conference learning how new programs can simplify and enhance research.
