California's Third Family History Expo is this weekend and I am looking forward to it. I have tried each year to make this event, however other things have apparently been more pressing. Finally, I can attend!  Here is the press release from August 8, 2011 with the details, I hope to see you there!

ones,” founder and president Holly Hansen said. “We want to assist in the journey of tracing 
your roots with the best results.”

techniques and technology in conducting your family history research. Professional genealogists
