Are you researching Greek ancestry? If so, can you be in Salt Lake City on September 26, 2015? If you answered “yes” to both questions, plan on attending the first-ever Greek genealogy conference held in the western U.S. The event will be held at the Hellenic Memorial Building (Holy Trinity Cathedral) 279 South 300 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Sponsored by the Hellenic Cultural Association, the HellenicGenealogyGeek and the Ethnic and Mining Museum of Magna, Utah, the conference promises that attendees will learn effective strategies and contemporary resources for genealogical research in Greece. An important component will be to invalidate the prevalent but false myths that Greek records have been destroyed, and to demonstrate where and how historical and genealogical documents in Greece can be accessed both online and on-site at libraries, archives, and other repositories.
There is a $25 fee which includes breakfast and a catered lunch. Details and registration forms can be accessed at the conference website at https://hellenicgenealogyconference.wordpress.com/home/.
