A registration giveaway

So The Legal Genealogist will be at RootsTech in February…

rt2017It’s one of those don’t-miss parties for genealogists, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, February 8-11, 2017.

It’s got more than 200 breakout sessions for all levels of experience so that the biggest challenge most of us face is deciding which to attend. The Expo Hall is jammed with exhibitors showing off the newest and best gadgets, gizmos and systems we can use to advance our family histories. The Innovator Showdown, for which I was a judge this year, gives up-and-comers in the field a shot at prize money to bring their ideas to market.

It really is a don’t-miss party for genealogists.

So, yep, absolutely, I’ll be there at RootsTech in February… and it’d be wonderful if you were too.

But, you say, it’s a tad on the pricey side, what with registration for the four-day event, on top of airfare to Salt Lake City, and a hotel room, and meals and everything else…

So… what if it was possible to ease the financial pain just a little bit?

Say… by the amount that you’d otherwise shell out for the registration for the RootsTech + Innovator Summit Pass?

Even at the early bird price, that’s worth $239… and the full ticket undiscounted is $299.

Does that make a difference in your winter getaway plans?

For one reader, that’s going to happen.

Because I’ve been given one registration pass that I can give away.

The pass covers it all: the keynotes, the general sessions, the breakouts, the Innovator Summit, even the evening cultural events.

Okay, so you still have to worry about getting there and the hotel and meals, but hey… it’s still a pretty good deal!

So how do you get in on a chance to win this? It’s easy. And you can still win even if you’ve already registered for RootsTech (if you’re the lucky winner, your registration fees will be refunded).

So here’s what you do:

1. Go to the RootsTech website and poke around for a while.

2. Then from the breakout sessions, choose a class — any session at all — that you’d like to attend. It can be one of mine if you’d like (“When Worlds Collide: Resolving Conflicts in Genealogical Records”; “Mothers, Daughters, Wives: Tracing Female Lines”; “Copyright Law for Genealogists”; or “The Ethical Genealogist”) — or it can be any of the roughly 200 others being offered by a wide variety of presenters.

3. Drop me a note (use this email link or use the Ask TLG link at the top of the page) and tell me:

(a) Your name
(b) Your email address and
(c) What class you picked — and why.

4. A random number generator will be used to choose the winner from all those who respond by 5 p.m. EST Sunday, December 18th.

And just to make it legal, anybody who enters consents to have his or her name mentioned here in this blog, which then gets reposted on Facebook and Twitter. No anonymous winners ’round these parts!

Good luck, and hope to see you in Salt Lake City in February.
