I attended my first conference in September 2012 at the Latter Day Saints church on the westside stake in Albuquerque, NM. It was awesome plus the price was right--free. It was the first time they had attempted a conference but there were very few problems. I learned a lot about doing research. Each hour had 4 or more choices. A few were repeated but no way to go to every class offered. Many of the presenters were well known genealogists. For those holding back from attending the Latter Day Saints conferences are great since they are free. Personally I am the head of our local genealogical society and work in the Family History Library one day a week so I have done a lot of research and helped a lot of people with their research.
