Planning for the 2015 Got Ancestors?! seminar with D. Joshua Taylor is well underway, and we hope to announce the topics and other details here in the early days of July 2015.

One major change for this year is the venue – we are NOT at the Prince Conference Centre at Calvin College this year – a scheduling conflict has seen us move the event to The Salvation Army Kroc Center at 2500 S Division Ave – just north of 28th Street.

There is plenty of free parking at their modern new venue.

Keep watching here for further updates on topics and registration.

And it’s there
