There will be Another RootsTech and I Suggest you Attend

A lot of our friends and colleagues chose not to attend RootsTech. They now know that was a mistake. It was full of interesting and important information for people of all levels of  expertise. It was fun, even including an evening of comedy. There were interesting keynote speakers.

RootsTech is a leading edge conference designed to bring technologists together with genealogists, so they can learn from each other and find solutions to the challenges they face in family history research today. At RootsTech, genealogists and family historians will discover emerging technologies to improve their family history research experience. Technology developers will learn the skills to deliver innovative applications and systems. They will also have the opportunity to receive instant feedback from peers and users on their ideas and creations. Attendees will learn from hands-on workshops and interactive presentations at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level

Who Should Attend?

This cutting edge conference has something for everyone, whether you are a software developer, a genealogist, a society member, technologist or a genealogy hobbyist. No matter your technology background, this uniquely designed conference offers customized experiences to help you become a valuable part of finding solutions that will bring technology and genealogy together. RootsTech also gives you a firsthand look into what new technological tools are available to power up your research experiences.

How Much Does It Cost?

  • $189 Full Registration Price
  • $35 Student Price (must show valid school ID)
  • $79 Single Day Pass
I picked up a great new product for writing stories for publication as an e-book. It motivated me to finish the story I am writing about my grandmother Nancy Athena Porter. If the software is as easy to use as it looks I will be writing a bunch of ebooks.  That alone made the conference worth it.

There was information on the cloud, wiki's, newspaper archives, social media, mobile applications, DNA, YouTube, Google+, to pay or not to pay, building websites with genialogy focus, tools, searching on line, 1940 census, England and Wales, genealogy webinars, and so much more.
