2011 BYU Family History Conference

What a wonderful week!!  Not only was it a week of inspiration and learning, but it was spent with my wonderful daughter, Marie.  We spent from July 25 to July 29 at BYU's annual Family History Conference.  This year's theme was, "Strengthening Ties that Bind, Families Together Forever."   We heard from keynote speakers, Dennis Simmons, (Church Authority)  D. Joshua Taylor, (NEHGS) and Ransom Love, from Family Search.  They were all amazing.  Marie and I took classes on Power Point, Excel, Preserving, Tracking English, Ancestors and every class taught by Joshua Taylor.  He is amazing!

The car gets parked when we arrive and not used again until we are ready to leave.  We walk everywhere and spend our evenings out browsing around the campus.  Each building is a story of it's own with displays, artifacts, and hours of browsing possibilities.  I could stay on that campus for days.  Of course, we ate at the Creamery two times and the Brick Oven once.  It's a good thing we do much walking.

The Brick Oven and Creamery (plus the Malt Shoppe) are required stops on any trip to BYU! I hope to go to one of BYU's family history Conferences some day, too.
