Ancestry Day In Oklahoma Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3rd and 4th, 2012

The following is from an email I received from Ancestry.com some time ago.  We have been a little out of sync here in Oklahoma so I am so sorry I did not get this posted sooner.  The event for Friday, August 3, 2012 was scheduled as a "Who Do You Think You Are" program and free to the public.  However, if you click on any of the links it appears as "sold out".  Not sure how a "free" event can be sold out.  It appears that you had to register for it and they may have exceeded the limit.  The register for the event was closed sometime ago.  No surprise.  Hopefully I can find someone that is going to attend and let us know how it goes, not a reporter but a blogger.

Ancestry.com is coming to Oklahoma!
