A Family History Fair!

Lindon FH Fair 15 Mar 2014 002

Lindon FH Fair 15 Mar 2014 001I was a guest today at a Fabulous Family History Fair in Lindon, Utah.  What fun it was to see hundreds of good people gathered and interested in preserving the histories of their family members.  I loved being there, and loved the excitement in each classroom and in the gym shown below.  At this “Heart-Turning Station,” young “medical” helpers were prepared and eager to help anyone needing help turning their hearts towards their ancestors.  It was fun and exciting.IMG_0688

Even the children were involved.  I walked in after a class had finished and saw these beautiful Play-Doh pedigree charts!  Then in the next class room, a kind and animated Grandpa was telling children stories–not from a book, but from his own life!  Imagine that!  The kids were enthralled!IMG_0683

As you can see on the schedule above, there were classes all day long, on many topics and a room filled with vendors and information of all sorts.

I met Brian Moncur, the CTO of Billion Graves and had a good visit with him.  They are doing some amazing work.  See their website here:  http://billiongraves.com/

One of the most exciting things today was seeing the younger participants leading the older, helping with technology and computer work, being interested themselves in learning more about Family History.

It was pretty much a perfectly-spent day.  Thanks to all who made it so.
