Over the years I have been hearing about RootsTech. It is hosted by FamilySearch and according to the RootsTech website, it is:
“A global history event, where people of all ages learn to discover, share and celebrate their family connections across generations through technology.”
I have not been to a RootsTech conference, but my recollection when people were talking was that it is a great resource to keep current on technology for genealogy research. RootsTech this year will be held 12-14 of February in Salt Lake City. I can hardly believe that is next week already! Some day I will go, but it is not this year. So I was absolutely tickled to see on the FamilySearch Blog that they will be offering “select” sessions free, both live and available later! Yep, I said FREE!
I don’t know what these sessions will be like, but I plan to watch many of them.
Technology is amazing. If you can’t get to a conference you can watch a live streaming session from the comfort of home. If you attend the conference and want to see more than one session in the same time slot, you can watch one session in person and catch up on another one later.
If I could, I would go to every conference, but this is the next best thing to being there.
