FHL Block Party This Saturday Ends at 2:00 PM

Family History Library Block PartyLooks like a case of my right hand not knowing what my left hand was doing. My article yesterday gave the wrong end time for the Family History Library block party. The correct hours are this Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

Sorry about that. Here is the corrected story:

The FamilySearch Family History Library is having a block party in Salt Lake City and you’re invited! They are blocking off the street in front of the library on 11 June 2016 from 10 AM to 2 PM. There will be free activities, live entertainment, Family Discovery activities, and Family history classes.

Free activities include face painting, a rock climbing wall and bounce houses. Snow cones are included on the list of freebies, but food trucks will charge as normal. Entertainment includes pioneers playing pioneer games, bagpipers, and Polynesian dancers. Family Discover activities include photo scanning (bring your photos with you), green screen photos, photos of you in your ancestors’ clothing, and the My Family Booklet, If you’ve added your relatives to FamilySearch Family Tree, you can see photos and stories you and your relatives have uploaded; you can see a map showing your ancestors migrations; and you can see what famous people you are related to (assuming there are no errors in Family Tree—hmmm). The two classes for the general public are Getting Started and Exploring FamilySearch apps.

More information can be found on a page in the FamilySearch Wiki.

  1. Different subject: Can my familysearch tree be "copied" to Ancestry through Ancestry?
    If yes:
    - will my tree be copied as a public or private tree?
    -will my sources be copied?
    -what other important facts abt the results / process should be mentioned?
