In June and July we will participate in events in California, Colorado, Missouri, Oregon, Texas, and Utah. (The last weekend of July will be interesting, but we'll make it happen...).

The July seminars were not listed in the news letter of May 18.....the new one sent out on June 1st has a penalty for Missouri of $10.00 if not registered before May 31st.....duh

Jeannie, as a reminder, all of our seminars/classes for the entire year are listed on our online calendar at http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/Calendar2010.asp

Will you have a free presentation to attend in Provo like in year's past?

Jerry - yes, I've now updated the BYU conference entry with the classes that we will be teaching.
