The Salt Lake City Family History Expo 2009 begins tomorrow, August 28, 2009, in Sandy, Utah at the South Towne Exposition Center and even though I cannot attend, I am very excited about this event.
Why? Because there will be many fellow genealogy bloggers in attendance who will be using the latest social media tools (live blogging, Facebook, Twitter) to bring the expo to those of us who can’t attend.
Several of our colleagues have been designated as Bloggers of Honor by Family History Expos:
Anastasia Tyler: Blog
Jean Wilcox Hibben: Blog
Use the links above to follow them during the expo and you’ll get some valuable information and a “taste” of what it is like to be at a Family History Expo.
In addition you can follow Family History Expos on Twitter at @FHExpos and attendees have been asked to use the Twitter hashtag #FHX09-SLC in their tweets.
Finally, I will be tagging blog posts in my Google Reader so they can be seen here on this post. And I’ll have a “sticky post” on the front page of GeneaBloggers so that it can easily be accessed during the expo.
Congratulations to Holly Hansen and her excellent team for what looks to be a great event. And if you are travelling to attend, please be safe and we look forward to hearing about the expo in your blog posts, tweets and status updates!
