I'm excited to be a speaker (and Blogger) at the upcoming Loveland, Colorado Family History Expo, which will be held June 25-26th. This is my second time as a presenter at the Loveland event. I really enjoyed the Expo last year and the hotel and conference center were superb. Holly & Company always do an excellent job with the Expos--providing a wonderful educational experience with a personal touch!
Here is the announcement from Family History Expos. Hope to see you there!

We just added a Friday night event to our Expo schedule. Come join us as we view the documentary Forgotten Ellis Island. Produced and directed by Lorie Conway, this story of the Ellis Island hospital is a rare look at the experience of our immigrant ancestors.
"A century ago, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, one of the world's greatest public hospitals was built. Massive and modern, the hospital's twenty-two state-of-the-art buildings were crammed onto two small islands, man-made from the rock and dirt excavated during the building of the New York subway. As America's first line of defense against immigrant-borne disease, the hospital was where the germs of the world converged.
The Ellis Island hospital was at once welcoming and foreboding-a fateful crossroad for hundreds of thousands of hopeful immigrants. Those nursed to health were allowed entry to America. Those deemed feeble of body or mind were deported.
Three short decades after it opened, the Ellis Island hospital was all but abandoned. As America after World War I began shutting its border to all but a favored few, the hospital fell into disuse and decay, its medical wards left open only to the salt air of the New York Harbor."
