The GenealogyBlog Genealogy Event Calendar is in REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. The events that we know of farthest into the future are listed first. By laying the GenealogyBlog Genealogy Event Calendar out in this way, we are able to leave events posted AFTER THEY HAVE TAKEN PLACE. We invite our readers to send short summaries of the events following the event itself. Commentary on such things as attendance numbers, vendors, accommodations, the program, and so forth are welcomed. Please include your name, city, state, and if outside the U.S., your country. Give the date, name and place of the event first please.

Please report errors, bad links, additions & corrections to me at: Lmeitzler “at” gmail.com

The easiest way to SEARCH the Event Calendar is just do a “control f” on your keyboard and type in a place, word, or date you are searching for.

The following Calendar is for 2014 only. Click here for 2011 events. Click here for 2015 events.

Do You Want to Make Gigantic Leaps in Locating Your Ancestors? Do you have brick-wall problems in your genealogy research? If so – plan on joining with GenealogyBlog Editor, Leland K. Meitzler, and Donna Potter Phillips at the 30th annual Salt Lake Christmas Tour to the Family History Library this December.
The Salt Lake Christmas tour is known for having the highest percentage of professional researchers per attendee of any Salt Lake research tour.
Why December? Early December is an ideal time to come to the Family History Library. The library isn’t crowded, as it is at other times of the year. The festivities in Salt Lake City are underway and the Christmas Tour Family is waiting with open arms for you to join them.
By joining us in Salt Lake City on a Salt Lake Christmas Tour, you will be in the right place – at the right time – to locate more ancestors than you may have ever found before.
