This article will be of interest to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
UPDATE: Tuesday is the correct day. My apologies for making that unclear.
In conjunction with family history conference week in Salt Lake City, 26 April to 1 May 2010, family history consultants of the Church will want to attend several events, available to consultants without charge.
Fireside with Elder Allan Packer
On Tuesday (27 April 2010) evening at 7:00pm, Elder Allan Packer will direct remarks to family history consultants and workers of the Church. The fireside will be in the Tabernacle on Temple Square with overflow seating in the Assembly Hall. Please be in your seats at least 20 minutes before 7:00pm. Spouses are welcome as are any adults so long as seats are available. Parking will be particularly hard to find and attendees are encouraged to carpool and to use public transportation.
Elder Packer is a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy and is an associate executive director of the family history department. The fireside will be enlightening, informative, and uplifting. Consultants are urged to please attend.
Also on Tuesday, the Church will present three training classes for consultants. The set of three classes will be presented twice to accommodate individual schedules. The morning session goes from 9:00am to 12:00 noon. The classes will be repeated in the afternoon from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Both sessions will be presented in the Little Theater of the Conference Center. Enter through the western most set of Conference Center doors. Seating is first-come, first seated; overflow seating will be provided for the afternoon session.
Church History Library Open House
The Church History Library (CHL) will host an open house especially for consultants on Tuesday from 4:00 to 6:00pm. Whereas CHL tours available to NGS Conference attendees on Wednesday will offer non-denominational demonstrations of state-of-the-art conservation techniques, the Tuesday event for consultants will also offer LDS pioneer ancestry research assistance.
Here’s a summary of the Tuesday schedule. Remember to carpool.
|9:00am – 12:00||Consultant Training, Morning Session|
|1:00pm – 4:00pm||Consultant Training, Afternoon Session (repeat)|
|4:00pm – 6:00pm||Church History Library Open House|
|6:40pm||Be seated before this time for Fireside|
|7:00pm||Consultant Fireside with Elder Allan Packer|
Later this week (perhaps tomorrow) I’ll talk about free opportunities available to all that may be of interest to consultants also.
Sorry about the confusion on the date. Tuesday of next week (27 April 2010) is the correct day.
