Do you ever wonder about your family history? Well, hundreds around the Grand Valley learn more about their roots during the genealogy and family history fair on Saturday at one of the L.D.S. churches in Grand Junction.

Dozens of exhibitors were on hand to show visitors how to trace their ancestral heritage. There were also thirty classes held throughout the day to teach methods of tracking history and its importance.

Dale Siebert, Family History Center Director, says "Some people really want to find their roots and want to connect with ancestors cause they want their ancestors to help them understand why they do what they do."

If you are interested in tracking your ancestors, you can visit the Family History Center located in the L.D.S church at 28 and 3/4 Road and Orchard Avenue.
