FamilySearch is sponsoring the FamilySearch Family History and Genealogy Expo at IGHR. We hope you will join us for a fun afternoon where you can explore genealogy resources and educational opportunities, ask questions, and meet others interested in family history.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

The purpose of the Expo is to:

  • Provide a mini-exhibit hall atmosphere where attendees and the public can ask questions about genealogy and family history resources and explore books and other materials provided by exhibitors.
  • Create greater awareness of genealogical educational opportunities (including institutes) among the general public.
  • Explore new technologies that have genealogical relevance.
  • Expose IGHR attendees to some of the societies and publishers in the region.
  • Provide an opportunity for people to meet IGHR faculty and other authors of genealogical publications and to have these publications signed.

Expo tables will be set up in the Hill Atrium and Pecan Tree Gallery, both located on the main floor. This is a nice open area with views to the outside. There is free wi-fi throughout the space.

Parking is available in the South Campus Parking Deck which is adjacent to the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel.
