Hey Texas genealogy pals, here's an event of interest:
2013 FamilySearch Houston Genealogy Conference, April 26-27, 2013
The event is being held in Friendswood. Here are the directions.
Here is the agenda.
On the evening of April 26, there's music, a couple of keynote addresses and packet distribution. One of those speakers is Don Anderson from FamilySearch. I've seen him speak in person. He knows his stuff.
On April 27, there is another keynote address by Don Anderson, then five sessions of genealogy instruction.
Each session has 9 or 10 class slots, so there's plenty to chose from.
Have I mentioned that registration is free? IT'S FREE!
You do need to register for classes. Plus you can order a Subway lunch (which does cost $5) or bring your own vittles. Once you register for classes, you'll be given the option to pre-order a sandwich or not.
Questions? There's a page for that.
You do not need to be a member of the LDS Church to attend this FamilySearch genealogy event. I've been to many events and they're always wonderful.
FamilySearch did not compensate me for this plug (though sometimes they do give me bacon at conferences). I did it to promote genealogy in the 4th largest city in the country.
So thank you, FamilySearch, for bringing your genealogy event to H-town. Welcome. And try the brisket.
P.S. Here's the Houston FamilySearch Conference Facebook page.
