Welcome to the 2017 Victoria Family History Conference Webpage

Celebrating Families Across Generations

Family History is more than genealogy.  It encompasses all aspects of finding and organizing families, as well as putting faces to names, and histories to people.  Family History celebrates people’s lives, honors them for their contribution to our history, and allows us to gather strength from the past.  Their legacy enables us to build the next generation by always remembering where we came from.  

Together, we form a rich tapestry that ultimately bonds all mankind together.  woven-generations
