This year’s RootsTech conference is coming up at the end of next week. If you are lucky enough to be traveling to Salt Lake City for it, you are sure to be inundated with cutting edge information about genealogy and technology.
Technology and genealogy come together to teach and learn from each other at this conference. From February 2 to the 4, attendees will have a chance to learn about the newest family history resources from genealogists and technologists alike. Valuable research tools are being made and developed and will be further developed at this conference. We'll have a booth there; look for the BillionGraves table to learn more about our cemetery database project.
Prominent family history bloggers have been invited to participate and blog about the experience. You can find a list of the bloggers on the RootsTech site. Family History Blogs are great resources for connecting and sharing with other enthusiasts.
Last year, over 4,000 people participated in the conference online via webinars. Even if you can’t physically attend the conference, make an effort to participate in these video sessions. Diane Haddad at Genealogy Insider has compiled a list from the RootsTech site of the sessions you can watch live streaming from the site. RootsTech has not released instructions for participating in these sessions just yet, but watch the site for more information.
