Next week, Thursday through Saturday (March 21 -23) is the RootsTech Conference in Salt Lake City. RootsTech is a genealogy conference that has the latest family history tools and techniques. It offers a chance to connect with experts in your genealogical research, and be inspired in the pursuit of your ancestors. Sessions will show how to find, organize, preserve and share your family’s connections and history. Attendance is expected to be over 5000.
If you can’t be there in person to attend the over 250 sessions than you will have the chance to see 13 of the sessions live online at the RootsTech website. You can’t beat the price. They will be free all 3 days.
The schedule, below, is the times of the sessions in Mountain Time. For Eastern Time, they would be 2 hours later and Pacific Time an hour earlier. Note also that the sessions will be released later so if you can’t watch these sessions live you will be able to watch them in the near future.
