Find Your Tree in the Forest in Red Deer, Alberta

The Red Deer Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society will host a conference starting on Friday evening, April 13, and then continuing all day Saturday, April 14. I was honored to be invited to speak at this conference and I see there are quite a few other speakers listed as well: Gena Philibert Ortega, Thomas MacEntee (presenting remotely via Webinar), Penny Allen, Jim Benedict, Ronna Byam, Shannon Cherkowski, Janice Cushman, Peter Darby, Elise Friedman, Nancy Millar, Wayne Shepheard, Lois Sparling and Jean Tilbert. This promises to be a great event! You can find the entire schedule at

The conference is sponsored by the Alberta Family Histories Society and by the Alberta Genealogical Society. Several hundred genealogists are expected to attend.
