The regular monthly meetings of the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group are held on the second Saturday of each month, except December, from 9 AM to noon. The meetings are free and open to the public. They are held at the Red Brick LDS Chapel, 4050 North 650 East (Timpview Drive), Provo, Utah, usually in the Cultural Hall.

The new FamilySearch Digital Library is a collection of over 400,000 electronic books available at FamilySearch for free. Learn about this collection that contains books from the leading genealogy and family history collection in the US. Learn how to find names, stories, and photos of your ancestors. We will demonstrate the recently changed book viewer which significantly reduces the response time.
