*Keynote Address - "'''FamilySearch.org:&nbsp; Putting the 'Family' in Family History'''" - Paul Nauta
  
<br> Description: For many of our early LDS ancestors, embracing the gospel also involved a journey to Zion.Often times this began with an ocean voyage. Crossing the ocean in the 19th century was difficult, expensive, and often dangerous. This journey also marked a dramatic turning point in the lives of these converts who left their homelands and sailed for America. For those who joined the Church before the Golden Spike was driven, gathering in Zion meant crossing the plains in a pioneer company. Learn where to discover stories, letters, journal entries, and other accounts of the journeys of your LDS ancestors on the internet that will surely bring about a "Turning of the Hearts".<br>
