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.

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
