In the meantime, mark your calendars for February 26-29, 2020. If you can make it to Salt Lake City to attend in person, that's great! If not, there are virtual passes available, so you can access videos of some of the classes.
RootsTech is the world's largest genealogical conference, and whether you are just beginning to explore your family history, or are a professional genealogist, you will find helpful information at RootsTech. Last February, I learned about newspapers.com. Through a series of events that started with an obituary I found on newspapers.com, I was able to give my adopted daughters photos of their birth dad.
RootsTech also has amazing keynote speakers. Last February, John and I enjoyed listening to Saroo Brierley. Whether or not John is actually related to him, we could relate to Saroo's story. I think that is one of the greatest things about the world's largest genealogical conference: the feeling of connection that is there. Attendees rejoice with each other whenever someone makes a new family history discovery.
The theme for RootsTech 2020 is "The Story of YOU." Won't you join me? Early registration is now open. Visit rootstech.org/salt-lake for more information and to register.
