As we travel and spread the word about Family Photoloom, Scott and I attend a number of family history conferences, many of which are hosted by our good friends at Family History Expos: it is in large part because of Holly Hansen (FHExpos President) and her crew that that we feel so welcomed and supported by this amazing community. Now it’s our turn to offer support.
On February 20th, Family History Expos experienced a hard blow when their website was destroyed by a fire suppression accident in the data center that housed their servers. They are now rebuilding, and (as Paul McCartney once put it), “Every day, in every way, it’s getting better and better.” We invite you to visit their new website, a beautiful work in progress, and register to receive their free E-news and Tips.
To register, just go to the Family History Expos website, and click “Register” in the “My Account” box on the right hand side of the page.
As an added incentive, Family History Expos is offering a free digital copy of their very popular interview book “Life in Your Town” to anyone who registers. I signed up a few days ago, and received my e-book this morning. It comes as a MS Word .doc, allowing you to enter details and pictures of an individual’s life right into the document. I plan to pass a copy on to my 18-year old who has recently been conducting life-interviews with her grandma. (I don’t know how long this free e-book offer will last so sign up today!)
P.S. One of the things I love the most about Family History Expos is that they offer something for everyone, from the hard-core DNA-tracking genealogist (not me) to the journal-writing picture preserver (me!). Consider attending one of the many Expos sponsored by Family History Expos. This year there will be Expos from California to Atlanta and many places in between.
