First, she’ll teach “First Steps in Family History” at RootsTech, which is a family history and technology conference in Salt Lake City. Her sessions are Thursday, March 21, at 11 a.m. and again on Saturday, March 23 at 9:45 a.m.
“Family history is really about people and their stories,” Jeanette says. “We tell stories through our magazines, but I’m also passionate about getting others excited about the stories on their pedigree charts.”
RootsTech is held in partnership with the Story@Home conference, which is run by Utah Valley’s own Carol Rice — a national presenter, lecturer and author. Carol will also be speaking at the conference. See cherishbound.com and rootstech.com for more information and to register for the annual event.
On April 27, Jeanette will speak at “Legacy of Hope,” which is a mother-daughter luncheon benefiting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Tickets for a mom-daughter combo are $18, which includes lunch by Culinary Crafts.
“I can’t guarantee that my speech will be worth the money, but I can guarantee that $18 for lunch provided by Culinary Crafts is a steal,” Jeanette says. “This Orem-based company was just named the caterer of the year by the International Caterers Association, and nobody is surprised! The food and the setting will be spectacular, and you can’t find a better cause. Add in the mother-daughter factor, and this will be a fantastic event. I’ll be bringing my own daughter so she can feel the love, hope and unity in the room.”
“Legacy of Hope” is hosted by HopeTeeDo, a local organization that “promotes hope with every tee.”
