18th Annual Central Florida Family History Conference

You’re invited to the 18th Annual Central Florida Family History Conference on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 from 9am – 3:45pm. This is one of the largest family history conferences on America’s East Coast! This regional event brings world-class speakers from all over the country to help you find your family’s history!

For this year’s conference, we have BIG NEWS! We have MOVED! We have out-grown our previous location! This year we will be at OLYMPIA HIGH SCHOOL, just down the hill at 4301 S. Apopka Vineland Road, Orlando, FL 32835.

Moving to this much larger venue has necessitated additional costs. Therefore, a small admission fee of $10.00 per person (under 18 is free) will be collected at the door. Lunch and the conference notebook and CD remain the same price as last year! (Details below).

We are also excited to bring on board some stellar sponsors including Vertical Lending Inc., FamilySearch.org, and the Central Florida Genealogical Society.

We promise to bring you the latest news on where to find information on your ancestors as well as big, new changes to Internet research sites. As usual, we have a line-up of additional new world-class speakers and some amazing new topics! Click on the conference schedule for the classes!

Ten classes run simultaneously all day. View the Schedule to see all classes and times.

The conference does not have facilities for childcare, so we hope you’ll make your own arrangements for babysitting.

When you arrive at the conference, you’ll follow signs for the auditorium. Just to the right of that entrance, you’ll see a row of tables. Above each table will be labeled letters like (A-E). Just get in the line that matches the first letter of your last name.


Panera BreadIf you want lunch, the charge will be $10.00, which can be paid at the Registration Desk when you arrive. Lunch will be catered by Panera Bread. We cannot guarantee there will be enough sandwiches left, but chances are that there will be some overage!

You may choose a freshly-baked turkey or ham sandwich, served with a crisp quarter slice of pickle, potato chips, and a delicious chocolate chip cookie!

Notebook and CD

Just like last year, you can also purchase a CD containing all the handouts for the last four years for $10.00 or a bound conference notebook containing all the handouts for this year’s conference for $10. We recommend that you purchase both the CD and the conference notebook!

You will be able to pay at the registration table onsite, and the general admission will be $10.00. The event is free for students ages 18 years old or younger. At the door, we will accept cash and checks, but no credit cards.
