#RootsTech: Something for Everyone!

As I mentioned previously, I am delighted to be an ambassador for RootsTech 2020, which will be held in February of next year. RootsTech is the world's largest genealogical conference, but the appeal goes far beyond die-hard historians. 

RootsTech provides classes for everyone from the beginner to the professional, and if you go to the schedule page on their website, you can filter the classes by difficulty. A special "Getting Started" series of lectures lists classes such as "How to Build My Family Tree", "How I Can Preserve My Family Story", and "What Can DNA Do for Me?" 

The theme for RootsTech 2020 is "The Story of YOU." We all have stories to tell, and the stories of this generation are just as valid as those of previous generations. Family history includes now, and RootsTech helps us connect our current stories with those of the past.



Classes such as "Creating and Using Facebook Groups for Genealogy," "Put a Face to a Name--Finding Old Family Photos," and " 'Novelize' Your Family History Story" show that family history is not just long lists of names, dates, and places. 

I'm so excited to be part of RootsTech 2020! One perk of being an ambassador is that not only do I receive a complimentary RootsTech pass for me, I also receive a complimentary RootsTech pass for one lucky follower! Stay tuned for more information about that giveaway!

In the meantime, be sure to put RootsTech on your calendar: February 26-29, 2020 in Salt Lake City, Utah! Whether you have been doing family history for years, or are just beginning, you will want to attend RootsTech 2020! 

What types of classes are you most interested in attending?

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

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
