Wayne May, author and publisher of Ancient American Magazine now in its 26th year of print, continues to fill its pages with new and past discoveries in the Americas. Wayne has been lecturing on the topic of a North American setting for Book of Mormon Lands since 1993, from NY to CA. 

New finds in Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin and New York will be revealed.  Most of the earthworks in the greater OH area have never been positively identified as Hopewell (Nephite) or Adena (Jaredite). But, it is usually assumed they are all Hopewell in construction, but are they?  A constant interpretation of the Hopewell earthworks as being spiritual centers or fortifications continues in a tug-of-war within academia and with avocationals. Emphasis will be placed upon the similarities of the Book of Mormon archaeology as found in Alma with the Hopewell archaeology of the midwest.

Robert Jacob Kay is a Jewish convert to Mormonism.  He was born of unconventional parents and therefore was taught somewhat in all the learning of his father. And having seen many afflictions in the course of his days among a bunch of gentiles, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all his days he had a great desire for the knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God. 

Robert is an avid researcher of the Hebrew Roots of the Book of Mormon. Besides having a degree in Mathematics and an MBA he has spent many years studying the Hebrew language and culture.  He was schooled in the Talmud and several esoteric disciplines of the Jewish people. 

The Book of Mormon - A Covenant Road Map for the Restoration of Israel.  Utilizing the Learning of the Jews, the Book of Mormon contains a covenant mystery and science that is concealed from the eyes of the uninitiated. By examining this ancient covenant through the eyes of an Israelite, the record itself serves as a key to unlock the mystery of Zion and return of the House of Israel.  This presentation will reveal the Book of Mormon as an ancient covenant road map to the establishment of Zion, the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel, and the Ascension of God's people.

Recent book titles are Roberts Voices From The Dust series,  A Hebrew Roots adaptation of an ancient (Book of Mormon) record written by a remnant of the House of Israel showing unto the remnant of the House of Isra’el the great things YHVH has done for their fathers and that they may know the covenants of YHVH that they are not cast off forever. Dedicated to The House of Israel, the associated First Nations of America,and the Jews for whom it was written and preserved, and to those Gentiles by whom it came.  "Voices From The Dust: The Record of the Nephiy - Volume 1", "Voices From The Dust: Volume 2", and "Voices From The Dust: Volume 3"

Brian Nettles graduated from both Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. Brian studied Chinese language.  After eight years as a military officer, Brian now works for a defense contractor as a computer programmer for financial applications.  

During the past few years, Brian has renewed his interest in Chinese language.  Brian has followed his interest in written languages and has applied it to learn ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics, which in turn he has used to decipher some of the Michigan Tablets.  

Brian has used his knowledge of Egyptian, the Ten Commandments written on one of the Michigan Tablets, and a passion for studying Native American artifacts with written characters to decipher the written text on a number of Michigan Tablets.

David Doane holds a Master's Degree in International Relations (emphasis on Middle Eastern Studies) and a Master's Degree in Agricultural Economics from Brigham Young University.  He has traveled extensively in North America, Europe, the Middle East and India during his 35 years in the information technology (IT) industry.

His lifelong passion for the history, cultures and religions of the Middle East springs from his Jewish heritage and subsequent conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ when he was 22 years old.  His unique abilities to understand the meanings of scriptures spring from his Jewish heritage, extensive Book of Mormon research, educational experiences, and world travels.

Have you ever wondered who the Remnant are?  What do the scriptures and Joseph Smith say, and what do the native Americans say about themselves?  And, what is the role of the Remnant in the future?

Learn about how the Lord will personally gather His covenant people, the Remnant, fulfilling the Abrahamic covenant in part, as promised nearly 4000 years ago, and foretold in a number of native American histories.
