We are loving Education Week at Brigham Young University this week. We’ve been attending classes, enjoying lunches with friends, and most of all, we are enjoying sharing and teaching about family history. Thank you to everyone who has been attending our classes. It has been great to meet you and hear your comments. We look forward to the next two days!

Yesterday, we went over to the BYU Bookstore to see our books for sale. Then we went over today and saw that they they were mostly gone! Find Names for the Temple was completely sold out, but you can still purchase it on Amazon.com, here.
Research Like a Pro is almost sold out as well. It was fun to see our books in a real bookstore! We have only sold them from Amazon.com in the past.
I’ a little jealous of you ladies being there, but very much appreciate the postings. (the next best thing to being there – haha) So glad to hear your books are going over so well. That must be exciting to see them on display I’m sure. Looking forward to the eCourse starting next month. Enjoy the rest of your time there.
