From FamilySearch Wiki


Roots, Boots, & Brisket is an annual community genealogy training event co-sponsered by the Austin Oak Hills Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Genealogical classes are given on several topics such as Spanish Research or Texas Death Records. Class are taught hourly during the morning and patrons are able to choose which classes they take. One may typically attend 3 to 4 classes. Some Stake members display aspects of their family history activity and research. Tables are set up to have an Indexing Contest between the youth and adults. The WIFI is activated building wide so that individuals may bring their own laptops to do indexing. Family History Consultants are in the FHC, located there for public use, for individual help and consulting. The Stake President typically invites the Austin Genealogical Society to participate, teach a class or set up an information booth.

All individuals in the Austin and surrounding community are invited and welcome to attend. The event is free and during the event a lunch is served (also free) - usually Brisket, beans, potato salad and cobler.

This is a sample of the class schedule:
