The Cedar Rapids Family History Center invites you to attend the 2018 Family History Symposium. 

As you plan your attendance, we would love for you to enjoy the whole day.  But if there are only a couple of classes you are interested in, or your time is limited, please feel free to join us as your time allows. Please bring a brown bag lunch.

We remind you again this year that all classes are taught by volunteer teachers and the schedules, teachers, and topics for the symposium are subject to change without notice as we make adjustments.  We will endeavor to keep the information here in line with any changes that may occur.

If you would like to volunteer to help out at the next symposium, please contact Kacy Novak at 319-362-0487 or 319-651-9416.
