The South Davis Family History Fair in Bountiful, Utah, is one of my favorite annual genealogy conferences. In the past it has had over 1,700 attendees and I have enjoyed participating and speaking at it for the past ten or so years. For the first time it will be organized by the Utah Genealogical Association, a very capable organization of which I was involved as its vice-president eight years ago. If you plan to be in the Bountiful, Utah area the weekend of March 2-3, 2012, I would recommend that you attend. Here is their press release:
