I am an Official RootsTech Blogger


Big news on this little blog. I've been selected as an Official Blogger for the RootsTech conference, February 10-12 in Salt Lake City. This is a new event that combines technology and family history to "define the future of genealogy," according to the website.

Who should attend RootsTech? Technology enthusiasts, developers, and genealogists with an eye on the future of the field. Collaboration and discussion are strongly encouraged.

What will you learn at RootsTech? There will be dozens of scheduled classes and special events over three days. There will also be unconference sessions developed on the spot, exhibits, demonstrations for testing the latest toys and a tech area. A list of the sessions can be found at the Sessions and Accommodations page.

I am very grateful for the opportunity FamilySearch has given me to be an Official Blogger at this ground-breaking event. My intent is to attend all the sessions I can (including the after-hours events because that's where you get the best info) and blog all about it here.

It would be great if you would join me at the conference but if you can't, I'll bring RootsTech to you. How's that?

I may have to get a coat for this one. February in Salt Lake City is a whole different ball game than it is in Houston.
