I just recently became aware that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) in Naperville, IL will be holding an all-day Family History Day on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 8:15 AM to 4 PM. On-site registration will take place from 8:15 AM t o 9 AM for walk-ins. Keynote speaker will present at 9 AM. Program events will be held at 10 AM, 11:15 AM, 1:30 PM and 2:45 PM.
The all-day event will take place at 1320 Ridgeland Avenue in Naperville, IL.
Attendance is free, but registration is required. You will be able to register yourself in advance and note the programs you will attend via an online registration form that you can access through the Naperville Family History Center website below.
A lunch break will occur but no lunch will be provided. You can either “brown bag” a lunch or you can check out some of the local restaurants near the Family History Center.
Here is a link to get you to the Naperville Family History Center website where you can find out about this all-day program:
I have not personally been to the Naperville Family History Center (FHC) at the LDS church location in Naperville. I have been to both the Schaumburg FHC and the Wilmette FHC. So I cannot speak for the set-up of the facility although I am sure the presentations will take place in a much larger room setting within the LDS church.
There is a mixture of both “live” speaker presentations and also recorded “video” presentations from some major presenters at the just recently completed 2014 RootsTech Annual Conference that took place in Salt Lake City, Utah. Video presentations will have a moderator so that questions can be asked about the program. The link above provides all the details on the programs being offered for the day.
One of the programs will be provided in Spanish for those wanting to start their genealogical research journey using the Spanish language.
Mark this date and give it a try regardless of your skill level of doing genealogy research. Spend some time looking through the lengthy amount of information provided within the above link to the Naperville FHC about this all-day program. If you are a true Beginner, this fair may be especially helpful to you as you begin your research journey. If you want to gauge the level of programs presented at a national conference, then seeing some of the RootsTech videos will be worth checking out.
