Fun for the Whole Family

The Global Family Reunion – coming June 6, 2015 – is the biggest, most extraordinary and most inclusive family reunion in history. It will be a Family Reunion meets a World’s Fair meets a Music Festival meets a TED conference.

Come meet fascinating cousins you never knew you had — and learn about how we’re building a Family Tree of the entire Human Race.

Come to the event for a good time and to support a good cause: The fight against Alzheimer’s.
