Official RootsTech 2011 Blogger!


I've been invited to participate as an Official Blogger for the RootsTech Conference February 10-12, 2011 in the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah! My guess is that you probably have never heard of this event, right? Well, RootsTech is a NEW genealogy and technology conference that is meant to define the future of genealogy! And looking over the list of classes, hands-on workshops, presentations, and  panel discussions, it certainly is THE conference to attend! Click here to see the Session Schedule for each day.


Interesting side note -- I participated in a FamilySearch Bloginar announcing updates about RootsTech a couple of days ago as I was traveling by car across the desert of Southern California! The bloggers were given a couple of possible ways to participate in this FamilySearch event -- either by using a software called ConnectPro where I could see the presentation and hear the audio on my computer, or I could call in using my cell phone, use a passcode, and hear the audio only. Well, you can imagine that using my laptop as I drove would not exactly work so out came my iphone! It worked like a charm! I tell you this to emphasize how easy it can be to intertwine genealogy and technology which is what the conference is all about.


RootsTech will bring together users and creators of technology to stimulate innovation! Genealogists all over the world use technology daily, and at RootsTech you can see how this all works together to influence the future of genealogy. It doesn't matter if you know a little or a lot -- there is something at RootsTech for everyone.
