This Fourth Annual One World - One Family Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Keynote Address: Preserving and Presenting Your Family History

Dr. Donald R. Snow will address questions like:

Who is going to inherit your family history? Is your family history in boxes, drawers, and filing cabinets?
Will anyone keep your hard copy files? What about all those photos you've collected?

He will give us some ideas on how to assemble and store our research so that families can be inspired by their ancestors. He will also introduce us to FamilySearch Family Tree, the new database from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with opportunities for everyone to store data, photos, stories, and to collaborate with each other in family history

We are fortunate to have Dr. Donald R. Snow as our keynote speaker and as a presenter of two workshops.

Dr. Snow is a Californian with Utah roots. He has degrees in Mechanical Engineering as well as Mathematics; has taught Mathematics at Brigham Young University; been a Visiting Professor of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo; has been a Vice President of the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group since the early 1990's. He is also speaking at the Brigham Young University Family History Conference this summer.
