Set the date September 8, 2018 on your calendar for our next annual FamilySearch Library Family History Conference at Ogden Utah Weber State University. The conference will last all day Saturday and the Conference will be FREE to the public. It is free because of the Ogden FamilySearch Library partnership with the Weber State University History Department in the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, who have donated the use of the Shepherd Union Building, where the conference will be located.

  • We will have about 25 different vendors on site to tell about their amazing new products (for purchase) that will help you organize and research your family history work.
  • We will have about 50 different class sessions for teaching and learning.
  • We will have the Union Building Food Court Tres Habaneros and Waldos Grill which will be available from 11:00 to 2:00 for you to purchase hot lunches or other food items.
  • The break between classes will be extended to 20 minutes to allow more time to visit the vendors or grab a bite to eat.
  • Ballroom C will be focused on Young Single Adult family history interests.
  • 15 Discovery Screens will be available, courtesy of FamilySearch.
