Where will you be on October 24? Hopefully in London, enjoying the experience that is RootsTech! There is nothing like it. It’s the best of all worlds…informative classes presented by experienced genealogists, an Exhibition hall featuring over 100 stands devoted to everything genealogy, and world-famous keynote speakers who will bring their passion for family history to the stage, each in their own unique way. You will walk away feeling inspired, uplifted and eager to put all your newly learned information into practice.

Take a peek at the recently released schedule (subject to change) and you’ll see an excellent variety of classes to choose from, covering all aspects of genealogy:

If you just can’t make it to London, don’t despair! RootsTech will offer a variety of classes which will be recorded and made available as part of a virtual pass. Stay tuned as those will be announced in the next few weeks. The beauty of the virtual pass is being able to watch at home in your pajamas if you like, and still experience the magic that is RootsTech!

If you’ve never heard of RootsTech and wonder what all the hype is about, you can watch some of the sessions recorded at RootsTech in Salt Lake City earlier this year. They are freely available to watch, just be sure you have enough time as you’ll want to watch them all! You can also read about my own experience at RootsTech Salt Lake City 2019 here.

As an official RootsTech London ambassador I will have a complimentary RootsTech London pass worth £149 to give away. Stay tuned for more info on that!

RootsTech 2019 Recap

IMG_5997

It’s hard to believe that RootsTech 2019 was 3 weeks ago! I came back from an absolutely wonderful week to a pretty big assignment for the ProGen course I’m taking and have been working on that all month. It’s finally submitted now and time to do a short recap of what was a busy, fun, exhausting, but inspiring week!

This was my fifth RootsTech and the fourth that my friend Kandace and I have been at together. We meet in Salt Lake City each February to indulge in our love for genealogy and to catch up on each others’ lives. The theme for this year of Connect.Belong. seemed to fit so well with a friendship that’s been going strong for over 18 years now!

This year was my first as a RootsTech Ambassador and it was fantastic! Besides promoting RootsTech on all of our social media platforms, each ambassador was given a free registration to give away and my competition was won by John. John came all the way from The Netherlands to attend RootsTech! It was great to meet him in person.

What fun to be part of this amazing group of RootsTech ambassadors!

RootsTech always comes through with interesting classes and inspiring, energetic keynote sessions. No exception this year! The keynote sessions are available to watch at RootsTech.org. So if you weren’t able to attend RootsTech 2019, or just want to watch them again, head over and relive the magic!

I was interviewed by RootsTech and given a few minutes to gush about why I love it so much and what keeps me coming back. A fun but kind of nerve wracking experience!

What a great experience this year’s RootsTech was! And now RootsTech is headed to London! I got the news while at RootsTech that I am one of the official RootsTech London Ambassadors which is really exciting! I’m so happy that friends and family in the U.K. will be able to experience the magic that is RootsTech! Early bird pricing is happening now for RootsTech London!
