Friday Family History: RootsTech

Have you heard about RootsTech, the conference which combines family history and technology?  I've never attended, but thanks to the internet, I can watch various presentations from the comfort of my home--and you can too (though you'd probably prefer the comfort of your own home.)

www.rootstech.org


RootsTech 2013 offers many different classes on how to use technology to research, document and preserve family history.  I haven't had a chance to watch much yet, but what I have seen has been very enjoyable.  If you've ever wanted to preserve your family stories, you might want to view the class called, "Tell it Again," by Kim Weitkamp.

You can also watch other classes from yesterday, or catch live streaming presentations today and tomorrow.


I've never heard anyone express regret that they started family history research too soon, but I have heard individuals wish that they had gathered information sooner.  Many families gather for the holidays; if your family is getting together for Easter, you might want to record some family memories.  

Thanks for family stories, and the technology that makes preservation relatively (pun intended) easy.

  2. What?! Here I was sitting at home seriously feeling bad that I hadn't been able to attend. :) Thanks for the genius link. I changed my emphasis to family history for my BYU degree. I am hoping to attend the Family History conference in Utah in 2014.
