2nd Annual Tri-Stake Conference

Forever Families: The Perfect Gift

Plans are well underway for our local family history conference being held in Fillmore, Utah on September 17, 2011 from 9 am to 3 pm. It will be held at the Millard High School and some wonderful classes are being planned.

Stop back by in a month or so and the classes will be listed.

Registration for the conference can be done by simply filling out the form on the left. Be sure and scroll down so that the entire form can be filled out and submitted.

If you are later registering you are still very welcome to come. The early registration is so that we will be able to print a syllabus out for you. If you register late, you will most likely not receive a printed syllabus but we are planning on putting it online and you can download the information from each class from the link [we will put on this blog once it is available].

We look forward to seeing you there.
