Other notable instructors include Tim Cross, product manager for FamilySearch; Brad Young, product manager of FamilySearch Photos and Stories; Todd Powell, manager of Family Tree mobile app; and Bruce Buzbee, president of RootsMagic. These and other experienced family history instructors will present over twenty classes this year, including a special course designed specifically for high priest group leaders and a track especially for youth. For those who attended in the past, we will be at a new venue this year, Mapleton North Stake Center, 475 North 1600 West (Highway 89), Mapleton, Utah.
