Packing My Bags for RootsTech
The plane tickets are purchased. That makes it official. I'm going to RootsTech.
Special thanks to my parents who are actually flying to Houston to watch grandchild #1 so I can go to Salt Lake City and act like a child myself.
I don't have much on the dance card yet. I'm arriving a couple days before the conference so I can spend some time at the Family History Library. One night there's a birthday party for some old dude who turned 50. I think I have a dinner with FamilySearch another evening, but I can't remember. (Bloggers, am I imagining this?) Other than that I'm ready to mingle, meet new people, get looked down on by "peers," gossip, have a waffle one morning, test tech toys and hopefully learn something new.
If you're going to RootsTech, let's meet up. If you want to go to RootsTech, stay tuned because I'll be giving away a free registration. If you are devastated and a little jealous because you can't go, no worries because they usually record several off the sessions for home viewers. You can have the educational experience in your pajamas.
Until then, bear with me because I'm a little excited to be going to genealogical Disneyland. Must start planning my library visit now....
