Do you need to break down some brick walls in your research? Would you like to find relatives you never knew about, locate living relatives for DNA testing, find or return family heirlooms, find out more about your medical genealogy, find living relatives to an unclaimed estate, and more? Come learn how to find descendants in your family tree!
UGA’s 50th Summit of Excellence is coming up in September, and I’ll be presenting “Finding Descendants in Your Family Tree”!
The Summit of Excellence is the Utah Genealogical Association’s annual virtual conference that provides premier genealogical education.
Register for UGA’s 50th Summit of Excellence and come hear “Finding Descendants in Your Family Tree”, under their methodology track!
Distinguished genealogical speakers will be giving presentations on a wide range of topics given over a four-day event, from September 15-18, 2021. On Wednesday, September 15th, they will have a "Getting Started Day". This day is FREE, and will be on beginning genealogy; it will include such topics as introduction to record types, beginning research methods, tools for online research, and more. Thursday, September 16th will include methodology, general records, and regional/ethnic specialties. On Friday, September 17th, there will be presentations on DNA, legal records, regional/ethnic specialties, and professional topics. Saturday, September 18th, topics will include technology, military records, and regional/ethnic specialties. The best thing about a virtual conference is that you can still attend sessions that you’ve missed, and you will have access to the digital recordings of the sessions for several months after!
Registration began April 24th, and ends on September 4th; you won’t want to miss out!
