One keynote this year is by filmmaker T.C. Christensen who will be speaking about his new movie, Cokeville Miracle. If you wish to see the movie prior to listening to his keynote, the BYU Varsity Theater will show the movie Thursday evening, 30 July. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased on the conference registration page. Click “Register Now” and add the “Cokeville Miracle” option to your cart.
The BYU Family History Library is holding an open house on Wednesday evening, 29 July, from 6 to 8 pm, for conference participants. The open house gives attendees an opportunity to learn about the library. The library will have four stations with scanners, microfilms, reference books, and databases. The stations will be staffed by missionaries, student assistants, and staff to teach and help attendees with their family history. There will be drawings for prizes, including large format fan charts and personal journals. Of course, attendees can also work on their own family history! There are plenty of computers available.
