I am an Official RootsTech 2012 Blogger

Great news! (Or unfortunate news, depending on your outlook on life) I have been named as an Official Blogger for RootsTech 2012.

What does this mean, Amy?
It means that I will periodically inform you about the happenings at the upcoming RootsTech conference, February 2-4 in Salt Lake City. This might include news, schedule updates, attendee perks and events, and more. I will also report from the conference for those at home.

How can I find out more about RootsTech?
Go to the RootsTech website and browse to your heart's content. The early-bird registration rate is $129 until November 30, 2011. That's quite a bargain for 3 whole days of top-notch presentations and exhibits.

What makes RootsTech different from other genealogy conferences?
The interaction and collaboration between tech developers and users. This may sound scary, but it's not. If you use any sort of technology (which is everyone who is reading this blog), then you and your opinions and preferences can influence this event. Take a look at the schedule, and be sure to attend the panel led by Jill Ball, because I'm on it along with some of my favorite bloggers.

Is there anything else?
Yes. I hope to see you in Salt Lake City, February 2-4, 2012.

[Disclosure: Official Blogger means that I received a complimentary registration to RootsTech. In return, I will publicize the event and share my observations. The over-enthusiasm is my own, as I wholeheartedly drink the RootsTech Kool-Aid.]


  1. Thrilled that we'll be blogging from Rootstech again. I completely understand your enthusiasm - it is an amazing event that has to be experienced to be appreciated.

    Our panel presentation should be a hoot.

  2. Congratulations, Amy! I sure am hoping to be there in February...

  3. Congrats Amy! I will be following you!

  4. Congratulations!! Great news. Looking forward to your post from this event.
