Cedar City's Summer UGA Conference

Cedar City's first ever Family History Conference will be held Aug.18, 2012 at the Hunter Conference Center on the Southern Utah University campus. It will be a one day event with sessions on local history presented by people in the know.  We will have presentations on Historic Trails of Southern Utah, the Frontier Homestead State Park, and the First Settlers of Cedar City.  There will also be classes on how to do foreign research including Scandinavian, Irish, and English research.

Presenters are coming to teach  about how to write our family histories, teach about DNA genealogical research, and reading Early American Handwriting.  There will also be sessions that are just for fun including story telling and music from the past. The day will begin at 8;30 A.M. with keynote speakers Dixie and Anne Leavitt and the the day will end at 4:30 following a closing address from Harold Grant Shirley.  Come and spend a special day with us on one of Utah's beautiful college campuses.  Registration is online at the Utah Genealogical Association website found at

Family ChartMasters will be there.  Be sure to stop and say "Hi."  And while you are at it, Cedar City is the home of Utah's Shakespearean Festival.  Stay an extra day to take in a world class play while you are there.  You'll be glad you did.
