Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Ginny Ack­er­son

The Fam­ily His­tory Fair jointly spon­sored by the Springville Fam­ily His­tory Cen­ter and the eight Springville LDS Stakes will be held on Satur­day, Oct. 15. With the theme “A Jour­ney Through Time,” the fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Hob­ble Creek Stake Cen­ter, 495 S. Canyon Road, Springville. The fair is free to the pub­lic; those at­tend­ing should bring their own lunch. Open­ing re­marks and the key­note ad­dress will be of­fered by Pres­i­dent Cliff Park, pres­i­dent of the Springville Dry Creek Stake, in the chapel at 9 a.m. At­ten­dees will break for classes at the con­clu­sion of the ad­dress. Classes will start at 10 a.m. There are 30 classes sched­uled that are per­fect for all abil­i­ties, from be­gin­ners to ad­vanced in­ter­me­di­ate re­searchers, and that will cover a wide va­ri­ety of top­ics rang­ing from Fam­i­lySearch and how to get started in ge­neal­ogy work to Bri­tish, Ger­man and LDS re­search and how to bust through your brick walls. An in­dex­ing class along with a class on get­ting the most out of An­ces­try.com and nav­i­gat­ing in Fam­i­lySearch Wiki will sharpen your re­search skills. There will also be a spe­cial youth track with five classes aimed at in­ volv­ing youth in fam­ily his­tory, in­clud­ing one on tech­nol­ogy. Priest­hood lead­ers and con­sul­tants can go to classes de­signed es­pe­cially to help them un­der­stand their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and how they can best help the peo­ple in their wards and stakes. Two classes are be­ing of­fered in Span­ish; one will be on in­dex­ing and the other on Span­ish re­search. There will be free hard­copies of the syl­labus avail­able on the day of the fair, or you can down­load the syl­labus at the Springville Fam­ily His­tory web­site, Spring ville Fam­ily His­tory Cen­ter. org, start­ing two weeks be­fore the fair and pos­si­bly for a short time af­ter­wards. Fam­i­lySearch will have a free copy­ing ser­vice avail­able where you can bring your fam­ily books and have them copied dig­i­tally dur­ing the con­fer­ence. There will be a sign-up sheet for this ser­vice at the reg­is­tra­tion desk when you sign in be­fore the fair be­gins. Be sure to bring the book you want copied and a de­vice to copy it onto such as a flash drive. *** The cost of free­dom is al­ways high, but Amer­i­cans have al­ways paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of sur­ren­der, or sub­mis­sion. - John F. Kennedy
