Did you know that Kansas City...




...is called the City of Fountains?

...is home to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum?

...is the only city in the US with a National WW I Museum?

...is the host city for the Midwest Family History Expo?

And you thought the only thing we had to offer is cows and barbecue! While we do claim to have some of the best barbecue in the country, we have come a long way since our "cow-town" days! Kansas City has grown into a destination all it's own, particularly for those who have an interest in history.

The inaugural Midwest Family History Expo will be held July 30-31, 2010 at the KCI Expo Center. You may register for one or two days worth of sessions, which will include time in the exhibit hall and valuable networking opportunities with other researchers just like you.

If you are not able to commit the time of attending a full day of conference activities, or you are not sure that a Family History Expo is right for you, come for the opening session which is free. Also, at no cost, you can visit the vendors in the exhibit hall and see what they have to offer. I think you will be impressed with what you see and how technology is being embraced by the genealogy field.

I hope to see you at the Expo!
