MURRAY — About 650 people, including visitors from Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming and Idaho, attended the June 9 family history conference by the seven-stake Murray region of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to conference coordinator Darrell Townsend.
Class topics ranged from the basics of genealogy research to writing family histories.
Exhibits included companies offering assistance with writing and publishing family histories, genealogy computer programs, ancestral photography, genealogy supplies and charts.
Through one of the family history classes, one attendee found an answer to a genealogy question she has had for 25 years, Townsend said.
Organizers hope that this will be an annual event.
