Reason says Go with the Well-Known. Instinct says: Go with the Know-How!

This is a special invitation for you from Arlene Eakle to attend the Atlanta Georgia Family History Expo (held at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth GA, 9-10 November 2012).  I am so excited about this event—because I am giving a grand prize of a $500.00 Research Package away.  You have access to my knowledge and experience–and to my field research trip in November to Virginia, North Carolina (and perhaps South Carolina, Maryland, and other places–based on your research needs!

But, you don’t get just me and my know-how!  You get a whole array of terrific benefits when you attend this Expo:

  • Learn the tech to trace your roots from experienced nationally/internationally known instructors, software developers, and successful researchers.
  • Download, view and study class handouts before the event so you can come prepared with questions to ask the experts.  Once you register, you have access to all the handouts which are available online–whether you attend the classes or not.  Go to to register.
  • FamilySearch developers, consultant training, and expert researchers from the Family History Library will be there teaching classes to make you more adept at using .
  • Visit our Ask-the-Pros booth where you can bring your own personal genealogy questions to discuss with selected professional researchers present at the Expo.
  • Check out our Exhibit Hall filled with vendors who have unique products and services selected just for you–Our book vendor alone will have more than 600 separate book titles for purchase. These books are selected based on expert knowledge by Leland K. Meitzler, a genealogy research expert in his own right–he really knows what you need to be successful. And they are sold by Leland’s son Dale Meitzler and his wife, Tara who answer questions for you about each title.
  • You have the opportunity to attend more classes:  Speakers come from throughout the United States, Canada, Israel, and Africa.  At the Atlanta GA Expo, 9-10 November 2012, a whole track of African-American study and discovery awaits you–with Paul Ajai from Ghana, and Berny Gracey from CT (executive officer for Pitney Bowes), with others carefully selected and invited to participate.  This is an event you won’t want to miss–since many of the original Africans to America were from Ghana!
  • You can mingle, rub shoulders with, and talk directly with speakers and vendors:  This is a unique opportunity to increase your own knowledge and skills by sharing and networking with other genealogists present.
  • Bloggers will be talking about the event via Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and other social media–join in the conversation and excitement–before the event and in the Exhibit Hall.
  • You can win amazing door prizes each hour and grand prizes at the end of the Expo! You qualify to win these prizes by attending classes–Grand prizes include $900 in online classes offered by Genealogical Studies, University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada; a professional research package valued at $500 offered by me, Arlene H. Eakle; special research kits from; and many more great prizes.
  • And you can bring your hardest-to-find ancestors for special help from me–Arlene Eakle.  My areas of specialty include Virginia, Tennessee, and the Southern United States; New York and Pennsylvania; British Isles including Ireland; Switzerland and some parts of Germany.
