FEEFHS Conferences

Joe Everett shares his knowledge of online records in the Research Essentials track at the FEEFHS workshop in Salt Lake City in 2013.

The first FEEFHS Conference was held in Salt Lake City in 1994.
Since then FEEFHS has held 20 conferences and workshops in 11 cities in Canada and the United States featuring speakers with expertise in Eastern European genealogical research. Each conference or workshop has provided participants the opportunity to receive expert instruction, exchange ideas, network at events, and share discoveries.

For the past few years FEEFHS has focused its energies on the annual Eastern European Research Workshop, held in Salt Lake City, where participants are able to access records at the nearby Family History Library and receive one-on-one consultation. In 2014, we are returning to a three-day conference format, adding pre-conference workshops to meet assisted research needs.
