The party begins

It’s one of genealogy’s biggest events — the massive RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City. And it’s now officially underway.

RT-Speaker-badge-200sqToday marks the opening of the fourth annual “global family history event where people of all ages learn to discover and share their family stories and connections through technology.”1

If you’re home feeling blue about missing the fun, remember that there are some 15 sessions being streamed live around the world, so you don’t have to miss out on everything.
