If you're working on next year's family trips, you may want to consider working in a stop at the free Family Discovery Day this upcoming February. RootsTech, an annual family history conference in Salt Lake City, is excited to announce an exciting line-up of speakers for their free family event, including apostles and other well-known Mormons.
The purpose of Family Discovery Day, RootsTech explains, is to "inspire the entire family to discover and share family stories and connections--past, present, and future." The event is specifically for members ages 8 and up to learn how to do family history work and prepare names to take to the temple.
Last year's event drew over 6,000 attendees, and this year is expected to attract event more. Speakers lined up to present include Elder Neil L. Andersen and Elder Quentin L. Cook from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, as well as L. Whitney Clayton and Bonnie L. Oscarson to name a few.
Olympic medalist and Mormon Noelle Pikus-Pace is also excited to speak: "My family means absolutely everything to me. I'm so grateful to my ancestors for paving the way for me to be where I am today. Coming together like this, to celebrate families, is a wonderful opportunity for each one of us."
This event is free but does require registration. Visit RootsTech.org to sign up or find out more.
