Beginning December 15, the Foundation for East European Family History Studies (FEEFHS) will accept speaker proposals for its 2022 conference, which will be held July 25-29, 2022.
The FEEFHS board decided once again to offer full-time university or college students with a valid student-ID free admission to the 2022 FEEFHS conference.
New Registration Experience
Beginning in 2019, a new enhanced registration system was put into place for the FEEFHS conference.
In this two day afternoon workshop, you will learn the Russian alphabet in both print and cursive Cyrillic. There will be fun, interactive practice in recognizing, reading, pronouncing and writing the Cyrillic characters. By the end of the workshop, you will already be starting to read original Russian genealogical records.
Participants will learn historical jurisdictional and cultural geography of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This will include boundary changes and ethno-linguistic geography and how these things affect record keeping. Participants will be introduced to a major gazetteer that is used for Austro-Hungarian Empire research.
FEEFHS is currently in the process to organize the 2019 conference on East European genealogy. The dates are already set in stone. As every year since 2010 the conference will be held at the Plaza hotel in Salt Lake City. The 2019 dates are August 5th and 6th for the pre-conference and 7th to the 9th for the main conference.
All presentations will be held at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel at Temple Square. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown, the Plaza is literally just steps away from Temple Square and other historical sites, shopping, dining, and many arts venues. It is also the closest hotel to the Family History Library.
